Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage talks about the origin of her Broadway play, “Sweat,” and the time she spent developing the story through her conversations with working class residents in Reading, Pennsylvania. Her focus on the struggles of this deindustrialized Rust Belt town predicted a national conversation around identity, race and economy that remains a focal point of political discussion today.
