Updated March 16, 2020: Effective immediately, ACT is canceling the first two productions of the Mainstage Season, Sweat and The Effect due to mandates on social distancing in response to COVID-19.

Sweat is the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets and laughs while working together on the factory floor in Reading, PA. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a fight to stay afloat. Heartbreaking and surprisingly funny, this remarkable play is about the profound forces that seek to divide us, and redemption in the face of inequity.
