The team behind the critically acclaimed West End revival of Philip Ridley’s Mercury Fur are to present the UK premiere of Superior Donuts by the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning American playwright Tracy Letts.

Directed by Ned Bennett and produced by The Trick (formerly known as Greenhouse Theatre Company) and Sarah Stribley Productions, Superior Donuts will run in The Little at Southwark Playhouse from Tuesday 11 February - Saturday 8 March.

As Starbucks and organic food stores pop up all around it in UpTown Chicago, Arthur Przybyszewski continues to run the small rundown donut shop set up by his Polish immigrant father. Neglected by its owner and damaged by vandals, Superior Donuts only survives thanks to a diverse group of loyal neighbourhood customers. But when Arthur hires an excitable romantic, Franco Wicks, who wants to change the shop for the better to work alongside him, he is forced to confront the modern reality of the American Dream.

A darkly comic and provocative drama about the challenges of embracing the past and the redemptive power of friendship, Superior Donuts brings to life the eclectic characters and changing face of a busy Chicago neighbourhood. This stunning new play premiered in 2008 at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company, where Tracy Letts has been a member of the ensemble since 2002, and it subsequently transferred to Broadway.
