“A wonderfully affecting and amusing work that reveals a master playwright fully in command of his powers!” —The Hollywood Reporter
Hot off the Broadway stage, this is a hilarious and soulful new comedy from the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning author of August: Osage County. Pony-tailed, ex-60’s radical Arthur Przybyszewski is the owner of a struggling, run-down donut shop in uptown Chicago. His shop gets vandalized. Arthur is worn out. Is Superior Donuts destined to close its doors forever?
Enter live wire Franco Wicks, a young black man with his Great American novel tucked under his arm. Franco convinces Arthur to hire him with the dream of transforming the donut stop into an upscale coffee shop with live music and poetry slams.
The growing bond between them is the heart of a tale about two very different men with extraordinary potential who discover the healing power of friendship. Their story is full of surprising secrets, big laughs and even bigger emotional stakes.
