2022 Tony Award® Nominated Best Play by
Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage (Sweat, Ruined)

Presented in Partnership with The Hansberry Project

“Feisty comedy is on the menu” (Washington Post) in two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage’s latest Broadway triumph.  Creating the perfect sandwich is the shared quest of the formerly incarcerated kitchen staff of Clyde’s, a truck stop cafe. Even as the shop’s mischievous owner tries to keep them under her thumb, the staffers are given purpose and permission to dream—finding that “sometimes a hero is more than a sandwich” (New York Times).

“Nottage’s delightful play dares to flip the paradigm. Though it’s still about dark things, including prison, drugs, homelessness and poverty, it somehow turns them into bright comedy.” The New York Times

“A flavor-bomb of a comedy about survival, second chances, and digesting whatever life serves up.” Variety
