In this stirring new play from the team of two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage ‘86 and director Kate Whoriskey (Ruined, Sweat), a truck stop sandwich shop offers its formerly incarcerated kitchen staff a shot at reclaiming their lives. Even as the shop’s callous owner tries to keep them under her thumb, the staff members are given purpose and permission to dream by their shared quest to create the perfect sandwich.
The production features Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black, In Treatment), Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us, Truth Be Told), Reza Salazar (Sweat), Edmund Donovan (Greater Clements), and Kara Young (All the Natalie Portmans). A brief talkback with Lynn Nottage will follow the show.
