Casting news

FURTHER casting has been announced for the West End transfer of Sweat. Written by Lynn Nottage, it runs at the Gielgud Theatre from Friday, June 7 to Saturday, July 20, 2019.

Returning from Lynette Linton’s acclaimed original Donmar run are Leanne Best (Jessie), Osy Ikhile (Chris), Wil Johnson (Brucie), Stuart McQuarrie (Stan), Clare Perkins (Cynthia), Martha Plimpton (Tracey), Sule Rimi (Evan) and Sebastian Viveros (Oscar). Read more.

Sweat has been nominated for the Best New Play award in the 2019 Olivier Awards, with the winner to be announced on Sunday, April 7.

Centered around the friendships of factory workers and set in an all-American bar, Sweat explores the relationships, resentments and fears of a community left divided by de-industrialisation. Simmering racial tensions and mounting anger lead to a devastating outcome for the residents of Reading, Pennsylvania.

Across the West End run of Sweat, over 350 tickets per performance will be made available at £25 or less.
