Quotes & Highlights
“The play is like a human chemistry experiment that sets out to discover what will happen when a sullen, disappointed baby boomer opens himself up to a young dreamer… A rich vein of feeling runs through the drama.” – Los Angeles Times
Tracy Letts, who won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for his epic, family drama August: Osage County_, and is the author of the hysterically brutal _Killer Joe, has shifted gears with this entertaining comedy.
In the Chicago neighborhood of Uptown, Arthur Przybyszewski runs the donut shop that has been in his family for sixty years. More content to spend the day smoking weed than running his business, Arthur hires a shop assistant, the young African-American Franco Wicks, who has both an unpublished novel and unpaid gambling debt. Their relationship is the crux of this heart-warming play, set in the heart of one of Chicago’s most diverse communities, which explores the challenges of embracing the past and the redemptive power of friendship.
