Enjoy this month’s play reading of “Sweat.” Reading, Pennsylvania, is home to generations of blue-collar folk, many of whom work at Olstead’s factory and share beers after hours. But when rumors fly about layoffs, politics and pride inevitably collide, forming cracks in decades-old friendships that crumble when the factory breaks with the union. From the opening scene to its electrifying conclusion, “Sweat” confronts issues of race, immigration, globalization and the ever-slipping grip on middle class life. Dramaturg Jo Holcomb will assign parts.
