Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage serves up a savory story of resilience, redemption, and the healing powers of food in Clyde’s. The formerly incarcerated kitchen staff of a truck-stop sandwich joint are on a mission to create the perfect sandwich—and to move forward from past lives that were far from perfect. Though Clyde, the shop’s formerly incarcerated owner, is a “second chance” employer who only hires people who’ve experienced incarceration, she never hesitates to remind her staff of just how precarious their lives are: how much they depend on her and the jobs she’s given them.
Hope and humor are the main ingredients in this thoroughly entertaining—and thoroughly urgent—play. The Washington Post called this Tony nominated play a "highly entertaining comedy of kitchen nightmares.”
