Prize Winning Play "Sweat" Touches Hearts and Fears, Actress Laura Leininger-Campbell Discusses

Jul 30, 2019

Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize, Sweat is a head-first dive into working class America.  A three-time Tony Award® nominee, Sweat follows a group of steelworkers whose steady march toward the American dream is uprooted by economic change.  As their sense of security slowly unravels, jobs and relationships are left in the wake.  Punctuated with lively humor, Sweat goes to the heart of what it means to be human—both good and bad—when fear and uncertainty take hold.

Laura Leininger-Campbell plays the role of "Tracey" in the show.  She joins Mike Hogan "Live & Local" to discuss the rehearsal process during this powerful play and the ideas and themes that remain universal. 

The play runs from August 16th through September 15 at the Omaha Community Playhouse.  More information is available at http://www.omahaplayhouse.com/
