About the Show
July 27 – Aug. 25, 2019.
World premiere by Lynn Nottage, directed by Kate Whoriskey.
From two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Sweat, Ruined) comes a razor sharp, disarmingly vulnerable comedy, a world premiere commissioned by the Guthrie. A rest stop sandwich shop named after its tough-as-nails owner, Floyd’s is more than just a respite for truckers. It’s the first step for its ex-con employees and their last hope for survival. A motley crew of line cooks forms under Zen Master Montrellous to learn the secret art of creating the perfect sandwich, a metaphor for how to rebuild their lives. NOTE: This production contains haze, fire effects, the use of electronic cigarettes and mature language and content.
