The Donmar Warehouse today announces the extension, due to exceptional demand, for Lynette Linton’s acclaimed production of Sweat by Lynn NottageThe production will now be booking for performances until Saturday 2 February 2019.

Tickets will go on sale at 10am on Monday 14 January 2019.

250 tickets, the equivalent of an entire performance at the Donmar, will also be made available for free to those aged 25 and under via YOUNG+FREE. This will take the total number of young people and students who have seen the production for free to more than 1,000.

 YOUNG+FREE is funded through the generosity of audiences via the Donmar’s PAY IT FORWARD scheme. These donations have allowed the Donmar to allocate more than 14,000 free tickets to those aged 25 and under since the scheme began. Tickets to the YOUNG+FREE Friday performance will be allocated by ballot from Tuesday 15 January onwards. The ballot is now open for entries by signing up to the YOUNG+FREE mailing list at

In 2011, Lynn Nottage began spending time with the people of Reading, Pennsylvania: officially one of the poorest cities in the USA.

During the following two years, she dug deep into the forgotten heart of middle America, finding a city divided by racial tension and the collapse of industry.

Sweat is the Pulitzer Prize-winning play that Lynn Nottage wrote following her experience.
