Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Tracy Letts weaves a
heart-warming and humorous tale of unlikely friendships in one of
Chicago’s most diverse neighborhoods. Arthur Przybyszewski’s Superior
Donuts has been a community hub for decades, and both the neglected
storefront and its rundown owner are evidence to that. But when Franco, a
young fast-talking dreamer, bounds into the shop, the writing is on the
wall that things are going to change – maybe even for the better.
