Clyde’s by Lynn Nottage is now available to purchase.

Clyde’s by Lynn Nottage is now available to purchase. 

Clyde’s is a funny, moving, and urgent new play from two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage.

“The feel-good play of the season. But from seemingly disparate ingredients—slices of ex-con life, a dash of fresh rom-com, a battle between the forces of good and evil—Nottage has crafted a light, delicious medley of sustenance and flavor.”
—Adam Feldman, Time Out New York 

With a chance at reclaiming their lives, the formerly incarcerated people working at Clyde’s, a roadside sandwich stop, strive hard to overcome their personal challenges. Not so easy under their boss Clyde. In this razor-sharp comedy, this motley crew of line cooks, under a visionary chef, are given purpose and permission to dream through their shared quest to create the perfect sandwich.

“A deceptively simple flavor-bomb of a new comedy about survival, second chances, and digesting whatever life serves up.” —Naveen Kumar, Variety
