In 2021, The New York Times reviewed Lynn Nottage’s play, “Clyde’s.”

“We are living in Greek times — or so you might conclude from the preponderance of Greek tragedies turned out by today’s playwrights. “The world they show us is too dark for anything but the cruelest of tales, the bleakest of forms.

“And no wonder. The systems that control our lives — institutional racism, predatory capitalism, the prison-industrial complex — seem as powerful and implacable as gods. What can humans do about fate, these playwrights suggest, but submit to it and hope to preserve the story?”

But Nottage’s “delightful new play” the reviewer continued, “dares to flip the paradigm.”

“Though it’s still about dark things, including prison, drugs, homelessness and poverty, it somehow turns them into bright comedy.”

And who doesn’t need a bright comedy these days?

From two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Nottage, this Tony-nominated hit from Broadway is full of laughs and insights into what it means to find your purpose.

Alabama Shakespeare Festival stages “Clyde’s,” May 11–21, 2023, at the Carolyn Blount Theatre in Montgomery, AL.
