Superior Donuts

6 Male, 2 Female

Tracy Letts Price: $15.95

Tracy Letts, who won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for his epic, caustic Oklahoma family drama August - Osage County, has shifted gears with this entertaining comedy set in a donut shop!

A love letter to the city where he has lived for more than twenty years, Letts describes it as "an exploration of the Chicago storefront experience"

The play takes place in the north side neighborhood of Uptown, where Arthur Przybyszewski runs the donut shop that has been in his family for sixty years

More content to spend the day smoking weed and reminiscing about his Polish immigrant father, Arthur hires a shop assistant, the young African American Franco Wicks, who has both an unpublished novel and unpaid gambling debt

"It is a meditation on Chicago's old soul ... a witty, seductive, live-wire and greatly entertaining dark comedy that you just don't want to end" ~ Chicago Tribune

"The sting, the speed and marksmanship of the gimcracks his characters fire at each other ... drips the kind of soulful, energized sarcasm that has long characterized [Letts'] work as an actor and playwright" ~ Time Out Chicago
