Reading, Pennsylvania. A valley town of fiercely proud families who worked for generations in the plants and factories of a thriving county seat. Unions rule, well-paying jobs are coveted and politics are personal. As companies disappear the men and women of Reading are rendered powerless as they watch their income, legacy and relationships follow suit. Based on Lynn Nottage's extensive research in Reading, Sweat shares the fear, tragedy and hopefulness of a Pennsylvania community being forced to accept inevitable change.
