Sweats is set in a seedy gay sauna where dreams are always for fools and friendships can turn into something entirely different. Sweats is a queer rom com with balls (and then some) set in the north of England. Martine (or Marty to her friends) is the manager of Sweats, a gay sauna that has seen better days and is certainly not that interested in customer care, she leaves all that young Sam who has problems of his own. Add to the mix Eddie & Tommy two good sauna mates and Calvin a visiting salesman with all the bad intentions you can think of and you’re in for a Saturday afternoon like no other.
Previously performed at Grin Theatre in 2014 to rapturous reviews, this is the remix and extended version written by Wes Williams. We are thrilled to have Stewart Campbell (Qweerdog Theatre Artistic Director) in the directors’ chair and he brings a fresh vitality and vision to this tale of love, passion and poppers.
Just so you know please be aware that the play includes partial and full nudity throughout, very strong language and scenes of a sexual nature.
Come and join the boys and Marty for an afternoon in the steamy Sweats (towels are optional)
