Set in a struggling Chicago donut shop, Superior Donuts is another delicious comedy from Tracy Letts, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of August: Osage County. Aging '60s radical Arthur Przybyszewski is as rundown as the old donut shop he owns. Content to just fade into obscurity along with his shop, Arthur is shaken out of his rut by the black teenage employee he hires. Franco wants to change the shop for the better, offering healthy menu options and lively music. The unlikely pair butt heads at first, but then begin to form an unlikely friendship. Full of Arthur's humorous and poignant reminiscences, and enriched with wonderful supporting characters, Superior Donuts illustrates the challenges of embracing the past and the redemptive power of friendship through finely-wrought characterization and the sharp dialogue that are Letts' trademark.

There is parking both in front of and behind the building. Also, there are quite a few buses that run from Silver Spring Metro and Wheaton Metro directly to Woodmore Shopping Center (where the theater is), but it's still not the easiest to get to via public transit.travel • Nov 18 2013 star this tip starred

This is one of my favorite plays, so I was glad to see it at Silver Spring Stage. I enjoyed the feel of the space, it was very intimate and perfect for the telling of the story. You can also dress casual. All of the actors did a great job. I personally had a few issues with continuity (setting, time, ect.), but overall it was a good experience. I will say that I was very well aware of what I was getting into in terms of content. This play has very challenging and disturbing subject matter; it isn't for everyone!
There is a parking lot behind the building. Not many places to eat nearby besides Chipotle, a deli that closes early and a Chinese carryout across the street. We went to downtown Silver Spring...only 10 minutes away when driving and had many great options and places to shop.
