Why you should see Clyde’s

Because if you liked the TV show The Bear, you’ll love this spicy comedy.
Because playwright Lynn Nottage is the most produced living playwright in America.
Because everyone deserves a second chance.
Because the perfect sandwich is a rare and beautiful thing.


Past the long line of truckers waiting outside, Clyde’s sandwich shop is more than just a greasy spoon. It serves up a chance at redemption for its formerly incarcerated kitchen staff. Owner Clyde may be a devil of a boss, but the workers discover purpose in their lives as they find themselves banding together – and sharing a quest to create the perfect sandwich. “Fast-paced and uproariously funny, Clyde’s is a spicy feast for the senses.” –Chicago Sun-Times
