"'Sweat & Tears' places a binary before the audience and asks us to do some of the interpretive work and question our own adherence to social constructs...The women’s half contains more variation and so can be more opaque at times than the male half. Together, these halves add up to a work that is imagistic, physically impressive, at some points funny, and at all points challenging."

"‘Sweat & Tears’ will punch you in the gut and then lead you into a catharsis…Between the violent beauty of the actors' physicality and the depth of the text, it will have you on the edge of your seat…'Sweat & Tears' is directed beautifully by Goldschmidt and Rutherford, their use of space is invigorating, and the arc that they've created between the show's two halves is exciting…It's brilliantly performed and a must for fans of theatre that pushes the boundaries of narrative."
