ABOUT THIS SHOW

“I just can't think of enough good things to say about it.”

Arthur Przybyszewski's run-down family doughnut shop in Uptown Chicago has barely scraped by for more than six decades until one day Franco Wicks, a young black man with visionary zeal and an appetite for change, turns up looking for a job and soon evolves plans to turn Arthur's shop into a hip and happening hotbed of neighbourhood culture.

What happens next in this wonderfully poignant comedy-drama from Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tracy Letts is a challenge to our assumptions about immigration and racism, while presenting the dangers of looking backward in a rapidly changing world and the redemptive power of hope and friendship.
