How I Got Over: Lynn Nottage, Kate Whoriskey and ‘Sweat’ on Broadway

With humor and heart, Lynn Nottage’s “Sweat tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets, and laughs while working together on the line of a factory floor.

But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in the hard fight to stay afloat.

Kate Whoriskey directs this new play about the collision of race, class, family and friendship, and the tragic, unintended costs of community without opportunity.

Following a sold-out run at The Public Theater, the critically acclaimed play opened on Broadway last month. WNYC editor Rebecca Carroll sits down for an unconventional conversation with the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and acclaimed director.
