THE STORY: Arthur Przybyszewski owns a decrepit donut shop in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. Franco Wicks, a black teenager who is his only employee, wants to change the shop for the better. This comedy-drama by Tony Award® and Pulitzer Prize–winning author Tracy Letts explores the challenges of embracing the past and the redemptive power of friendship.
“…a soulful play, full of humor and humanity…drawn with deep affection.” —Variety.

“[Letts] never fails to impress and surprise with his finely wrought characters and sharp dialogue…a wonderfully affecting look at a vanishing world and the healing power of friendship.” —CurtainUp.

“…a funny and moving evening of theater…as fresh and tasty as a doughnut right out of the oven.” —Backstage.
