Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage will see her newest work arrive on Broadway in a fall 2021 Second Stage production at the Helen Hayes Theatre. The untitled work, directed by Kate Whoriskey, follows a truck stop sandwich shop that offers its formerly incarcerated kitchen staff a shot at reclaiming their lives.

In addition, Second Stage will mount the spring 2021 world premiere of Rajiv Joseph's Letters Of Suresh, directed by May Adrales, at the Off-Broadway Tony Kiser Theater. A companion piece to Animals Out of Paper, the play weaves a mystery from a series of letters between strangers, friends, daughters, and lovers.

Casting and a creative team for both works will be announced at a later date, with a second Off-Broadway production to be announced in the coming months as well.
