An insightful new comedy from two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (“Ruined” and “Sweat”), “Clyde’s” serves up a story of societal struggles and sandwiches. Discarded by society and caught under the thumb of a tyrannical boss, the formerly incarcerated staff of Clyde’s truck stop diner can’t be deterred from dreaming of a better life and the pursuit of the perfect sandwich.
The cast includes Kevin Kenerly, Tamberla Perry, Reza Salazar, Nedra Snipes and Garrett Young. Perry plays the hot-tempered Clyde, whose eponymous truck stop café’s kitchen staff of formerly incarcerated people – Kenerly as Montrellous, Salazar as Rafael, Snipes as Letitia and Young as Jason -all dream of creating the perfect sandwich.
