Under the watchful eye of the titular character, Clyde’s follows the kitchen staff of a truck stop in a small PA town. Comprised of formerly incarcerated individuals, the staff come together to find fulfillment both in their lives and in creating the perfect sandwich. Layered with loveable characters, this show is “a genuinely funny and deeply emotional exploration of radical imagination, restorative justice, and the healing power of food.” (Bon Appetit)
This production of Clyde’s contains strong language and includes discussions of violence and drug use. It is appropriate for audiences ages teens and up.
