Clyde’s by Lynn Nottage
November 16 • 8:00 pm - December 18 • 6:30 pm$35 – $105
Center Theatre Group presents this electric, Tony Award®-nominated Best New Play from two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Sweat). The West Coast premiere of Clyde’s, directed by Kate Whoriskey, is a new comedy that serves up the story of ordinary characters with big dreams.
The formerly incarcerated staff of Clyde’s truck stop diner are looking to start their lives over in the kitchen under the pressure of the fiery rule of their owner. In pursuit of the perfect sandwich, the chefs imagine a future they have been constantly told is out of reach.
Deeply felt, quirky, and urgent, Clyde’s is a play that reminds us that “sometimes a hero is more than just a sandwich” (The New Yorker).
