Gielgud Theatre
35-37 Shaftesbury Avenue

Seating Plan


(3mins) Take Shaftesbury Avenue along the side where the famous illuminated signs are. The theatre will be on your left about 100 metres along.


The Gielgud Theatre has been home to some of the West End’s most exciting productions including Company and Les Miserables: The All-Star Staged Concert. But for just 50 performances, audiences can be treated to the Donmar Warehouse transfer of Sweat. Winning the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2017, Sweat dramatises real-life stories of individuals living in Reading, Pennsylvania at the start of this decade, with the play examining what it means to live the “American Dream” in today’s society. So, if you enjoy a gritty drama that’s powerful, exciting and new, you’ll want to book your tickets to see Sweat.

As the play opens, audiences first meet a parole officer, two ex-convicts and three childhoods at a fictional bar in the Northeastern town. Sweat provides insight into what it is like to live in the United States, with growing tensions affecting job opportunities, issues in society and the general way of life for someone in America.

Previous Pulitzer Prize-winning plays to have been performed in the West End include Angels in America, Glengarry Glen Ross and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, with Sweat joining this illustrious line-up. Don’t miss your chance to see this incredible play at the Gielgud Theatre
