Superior Donuts by Tracy Letts
Southwark Playhouse 11 February – 8 March
A darkly comic and provocative drama, this stunning new play from Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning American playwright Tracy Letts brings to life the eclectic characters and changing face of a busy Chicago neighbourhood.
Alongside the Starbucks and organic food stores popping up in Uptown Chicago, Arthur Przybyszewski runs the small donut shop set up by his Polish immigrant father. Neglected by its owner and damaged by local vandals, Superior Donuts survives on a diverse group of loyal local customers. But when he employs excitable romantic Franco, Arthur is forced to confront the modern reality of the American Dream.
Tracy Letts’ previous work includes the multi award-winning August: Osage County (National Theatre/Broadway) now a film starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, Bug (Gate Theatre) and Killer Joe (Bush Theatre/West End).
Superior Donuts is directed by Ned Bennett, whose previous work includes the critically acclaimed smash-hit West End revival of Philip Ridley’s Mercury Fur.
