By Tracy Letts
Directed by Matt McNabb

Superior Donuts takes place in the historic Uptown neighborhood of Chicago, where Arthur Przybyszewski runs a donut shop that has been in his family for sixty years. Franco Wicks, a young African-American man, and Arthur’s only employee, wants to modernize the shop while Arthur is more content to spend the day reminiscing about his Polish immigrant father.

Described as a "soulful play, full of humor and humanity” by Variety, this provocative comedy by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tracy Letts explores the challenges of embracing the past and the redemptive power of friendship. 

Lett's play is also the inspiration for the recent hit CBS comedy starring Judd Hirsch and Katey Segal.
