Filled with humor and immense heart, Sweat tells the journey of a group of friends who share drinks, laughs, and secrets at their favorite local bar after work on the factory floor. The close-knit group’s trust is tested during impending layoffs and strikes as they fight to stay afloat and reach for the American dream. This powerful and poignant story provides an emphatic look at working-class Americans and the intricacy of identity, race, and humanity. Produced on Broadway, Lynn Nottage’s contemporary play Sweat won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2017.

WE ARE EMILIA.
400 years ago Emilia Bassano wanted her voice to be heard. It wasn’t. Her story is still our story.
Emilia and her sisters reach out to us across the centuries with passion, fury, laughter and song. Listen to them. Let them inspire and unite us.
Times are finally changing. Not fast enough. It’s up to you. We are all Emilia.
Stand up alongside her and be counted. A riotous, witty reclaiming of the life of an exceptional woman.

Four hundred years ago, Emilia Bassano wanted her voice to be heard. It wasn’t. Could she have been the ‘Dark Lady’ of Shakespeare’s sonnets? What of her own poetry? Why was her story erased from history?

In Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s electrifying play, Emilia and her sisters reach out across the centuries with passion, fury, laughter and song.
