In one of the poorest cities in America, Reading, Pennsylvania, a group of down-and-out factory workers struggle to keep their present lives in balance, ignorant of the financial devastation looming in their near future. Based on Lynn Nottage’s extensive research and interviews with residents of Reading, Sweat is a topical reflection of the present and poignant outcome of America’s economic decline.
All of the characters were born in Berks County, Pennsylvania. They live and work in Reading, PA, which was identified in 2010 as the poorest city in America.
EVAN, 40s, African-American. Empathetic, strong, no nonsense. “Comfortably puffy,” according to the playwright.
JASON, 21/29, white American of German descent. Son of Tracey. While in prison he gets white supremacist tattoos on his forehead. A hothead.
CHRIS, 21/29, African-American. Son of Cynthia and Brucie. A more thoughtful, cooler and smarter young man than his good friend Jason. Wants to go to college and get a teaching credential.
STAN, 50s, white American of German descent. Started working in the factory in 1969 where he was seriously injured; walks with a limp. Runs but does not own the bar. He is informed, maybe even smart.
OSCAR, 22/30, Columbian-American. Quiet and alert. He was born in the US of A.
TRACEY, 45/53, white American of German Descent. A tough broad. Graduated high school in 1974 and went straight to work in the factory for 26 years when the play begins.
CYNTHIA, 45/53, African-American. Also a tough broad, but ambitious and real. She’s a survivor.
JESSIE, 40s, Italian-American. Gets nasty and mean when drunk. She went straight from high school to the factory line at age 18.
BRUCIE, 40s, African-American. Cynthia’s husband. Described by her as “smooth as satin.” He has become an addict and can’t get his act together.
