Why See Floyds?


A World Premiere Play By Pulitzer Prize Winner Lynn Nottage

Closing a thrilling theater season that transported audiences from the chilliest climes of the Arctic Circle to a basketball game in late 80s Beijing, the Guthrie proudly presents a world premiere work from two-time Pulitzer Prize winning American playwright Lynn Nottage. This time, theatregoers are transported to a road side truck shop called Floyd's, a local haunt of truckers and drifters where the art of making the perfect sandwhich is practiced and revered. 

Following her resounding success with critically acclaimed dramas 'Sweat' and 'Ruined', Nottage infuses humour into 'Floyd's, a companion piece to 'Sweat' (they both share the same location of Reading, Pensylvania and one central character). Named after its no nonsense owner, the diner represents a shining beacon of hope for those who've had trouble with the law. A fascinating array of ex-cons/line-cooks come together under the tutelage of Master Montrellous to learn the magic of sandwich-making and rebuild their lives.
