George Street Playhouse is thrilled to bring two-time Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage to its stage for the first time ever with her lightning-charged comedy CLYDE'S, which she says is about “the healing power of food!” Centering around the formerly incarcerated kitchen staff at a truck stop sandwich shop, Clyde’s is a story about living with and through your mistakes – and the importance of a shared dream in bringing people together; like the quest for creating the perfect sandwich. Don’t miss your chance to revel in this tale of reinvention and redemption, nominated for 5 TONY Awards – including Best Play!
