The Donmar Warehouse today announces the extension, due to exceptional demand, for Lynette Linton’s acclaimed production of Sweat by Lynn NottageThe production will now be booking for performances until Saturday 2 February 2019.

250 tickets, the equivalent of an entire performance at the Donmar, will also be made available for free to those aged 25 and under via YOUNG+FREE. This will take the total number of young people and students who have seen the production for free to more than 1,000.

In 2011, Lynn Nottage began spending time with the people of Reading, Pennsylvania: officially one of the poorest cities in the USA.

During the following two years, she dug deep into the forgotten heart of middle America, finding a city divided by racial tension and the collapse of industry.

Sweat is the Pulitzer Prize-winning play that Lynn Nottage wrote following her experience.

Her tale of friends pitted against each other by big business and the decline of the American Dream receives its UK premiere at the Donmar. Directed by Bush Theatre Artistic Director, and former Donmar Resident Assistant Director, Lynette Linton.
