About this item
"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
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 his new work 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his Polish immigrant father, Arthur hires a shop assistant, the young African American Franco Wicks, who has both an unpublished novel and unpaid gambling debt. Superior Donuts premiered at Steppenwolf Theatre Company and recently opened on Broadway--following the same path of success as Letts' previous work.
Tracy Letts is the author of Killer Joe, Bug, Man from Nebraska (nominated for the 2004 Pulitzer Prize), and August: Osage County (awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama). He is a member of Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company.
