    Bess Wohl's provocative new comedy takes place at a newly-franchised sub shop at the local mall. There, three up-and-coming "sandwich artists" -- a teenager, a single mom and a downsized corporate banker -- are perfecting the mustard-to-cheese ratio according to the company manual. But when their shot at the American dream is interrupted by a series of bizarre events, they become unlikely allies in a post-recession world. Even as corporate America gives up on them, they band together to prove that heroes aren't born, they're made ... fresh to order on your choice of bread. Hailed as a "brilliant comedy with cutting social satire" (Vanity Fair), this super-sized dark comedy about life, liberty and the pursuit of sandwiches is now playing at New Village Arts.
