Floyd's

by LYNN NOTTAGE
directed by KATE WHORISKEY

An insightful new comedy

From two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Sweat, Ruined) comes the world premiere of a razor-sharp, disarmingly vulnerable comedy commissioned by the Guthrie. A truck 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 formerly incarcerated employees and their last hope for survival. A motley crew of line cooks forms under Zen Master Montrellous to learn the secret art of making the perfect sandwich. 

Three things to know 

  • Lynn Nottage is the only woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama twice (Ruined in 2009 and Sweat in 2017).
  • Floyd’s is one of three artistic pieces about Reading, Pennsylvania, where Nottage spent two years interviewing residents.
  • Sweat, which shares a character with Floyd’s, will play at the Guthrie in summer 2020.
