Next up on our stage is SWEAT, showing October 5 - October 15. Meet the cast . This thought-provoking play takes place in the year 2000 as a group of friends who work at the steel mill discover their lives are about to be uprooted. This poignant play delves into the issues of today: the economy, immigration, race-relations in America, and politics. It never tells us who's right or who’s wrong, but always shows us who’s human.
