Superior Donuts

Hilberry Theatre
by Tracy Letts
Available as part of a subscription package.

Superior DonutsCelebrated playwright Tracy Letts (August: Osage County) brings his unique wit and style to Superior Donuts, the 2009 comedy set in a rundown donut shop in Uptown Chicago. Arthur, the shop’s owner, a former 1960s radical, has settled into his later years, accepting the shop’s downward turn. His energetic assistant, Franco, an African American youth from the neighborhood, believes the shop can become a community hotspot by updating the store with healthy menu options and lively music. This “odd couple” find themselves at generational odds in this warm and humorous comedy featuring the new Hilberry Graduate Acting Company.

“…a soulful play, full of humor and humanity…drawn with deep affection.” — Variety
