Clyde’s by Lynn Nottage:
Montrellous: Male, 40-50
Wise beyond his years, head chef of Clyde's. Nonchalant confidence, effortlessly smooth. Has ambitions for the sandwich shop and what he could do with it if Clyde let him. Believes he has the savvy and skill to make this business thrive. Sees sandwich making as an art form, a spiritual practice. A source of inspiration for his co-workers.
Rafael: Male 25-35
Gives a playboy attitude, though his game is a little lame. Puts up a tough guy front, but inside he's sensitive. A romantic; loves with every part of his body. Searching for his purpose. Does the most for the people he loves, wears his heart on his sleeve, and often gets hurt for it. Deeply admires Montrellous and is in love with Letitia.
Jason: Male, 25-35
Moody. White supremacist tats on his face. Somewhat fresh out of jail and new to the sandwich shop. Keeps his head down, and doesn't want any trouble with anyone. Has let his anger get the best of him in the past. Working on getting past his mistakes of the past, has self-isolated to try and deal with it.
Ethnicity: White/European Descent
Clyde: Female, 30’s – 40’s
Owner of the sandwich shop. The gravel in her voice betrays a life of cigarettes and whiskey, a life lived with gusto and no apology. A businesswoman who won't put up with any of her employee's bullshit. She's tough, not nice, not willing to bend. Has an edge and grit. Not a dreamer, live firmly in reality, doesn't believe things can be better than they are. Ex-con who only hires ex-cons, she gives them a chance.
