Colonial Players presents 'Superior Donuts'
In the scruffy Uptown section of Chicago, Arthur Przybyszewski still runs the donut shop his father founded before he was born. Arthur is besieged by a new Starbucks across the street, his aged hippie sensibilities, and the recent death of his ex-wife. His store reflects the state of his mind, ill-tended, marred by the vandalism of a disgruntled ex-employee and slipping into bankruptcy. A new employee, Franco Wicks, urges him to revitalize the store by opening evening hours, encouraging poetry readings, cultivating a writers’ enclave. Franco is a young, enterprising writer whose intelligence and energy nudges Arthur’s torpid spirit into new life, especially when Franco is nearly killed by thugs seeking to collect his gambling debts. You’ll find this lively play uplifting and deeply funny as you meet Arthur, Franco and the people around them struggling to make something good of their lives.
Superior Donuts contains mature themes, language and violence.
Adults, $20. Student/Senior/Military, $15.
Showtimes are Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm. There is an additional show on Sunday, February 23rd at 7:30pm. Call the Box Office at 410-268-7373 or visit the Colonial Players websitefor tickets!
