On a long stretch of highway, in the middle of here and there, Clyde’s truck stop diner sizzles with the aroma of possibility and redemption. Between slinging grilled cheese and tuna melts, the formerly incarcerated kitchen staff at Clyde’s dream of creating the perfect recipe. Led by sandwich sensei Montrellous, can the team juggle customer orders, dark pasts and their boss’ incessant mind games to avoid having their aspirations burnt to a crisp?
Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner (for RUINED and SWEAT) Lynn Nottage layers ripe wit, flavourful characters and surprises in this poignant story of sandwiches and second chances.
Ensemble presents the Australian premiere of this Tony Award nominated 2021 Broadway play, one that will leave you satisfied long after you’ve left the theatre.
This production is supported by Mark Kilmurry & Jacqui Taffel.
