“Sometimes a hero is more than a sandwich.” – The New York Times
In this feisty new comedy by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Sweat, Ruined) and directed by Jamil Jude (Choir Boy, DCPA), you’ll become a fly on the wall of Clyde’s, a roadside sandwich shop, in all its gastronomical glory.
At Clyde’s, formerly incarcerated individuals cook up meals that range from sublime to soul-crushing. Even as the surly shop owner tries to keep them under her thumb, their kitchen mentor, Montrellous, guides them on a quest to create the perfect sandwich – and reclaim their lives. Through this shared pursuit, each cook must face their demons on their personal journeys towards purpose, self-worth, and even salvation.
Clyde’s a 2022 Tony Award nominee for Best Play, is an extraordinary work that dances effortlessly between moments of searing pain and outrageous humor. It’s a work Variety calls “a flavor-bomb of a new comedy.” It’s the sustenance you didn’t know you needed — until now.
