“Clyde’s opened at the Ahmanson Theatre and runs through December 18, 2022. In this electric, Tony Award®-nominated Best New Play from two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Sweat), the West Coast premiere of Clyde’s is a new comedy that serves up the story of ordinary characters with big dreams. The formerly incarcerated staff of Clyde’s truck stop diner are looking to start their lives over in the kitchen under the pressure of the fiery rule of their owner. In pursuit of the perfect sandwich, the chefs imagine a future they have been constantly told is out of reach. Deeply felt, quirky, and urgent, Clyde’s is a play that reminds us that “sometimes a hero is more than just a sandwich” (The New Yorker).
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.
