Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage's play Sweat opened at the Donmar Warehouse last night.

The show received rapturous applause from critics, including a five-star review from WhatsOnStage's Sarah Crompton, who said: "The detail and compassion of the writing is matched by performances of great depth, all directed by Linton with control and sensitivity."

The show is set in 2000 as President Bush is elected and follows the lives of three women who work at a steel plant.

The piece stars Leanne Best, Clare Perkins and Martha Plimpton.
