Owned by down-on-his-luck Vietnam draft dodger Arthur Przybyszewski, Superior Donuts is the local hangout for an odd lot of colorful characters – each searching for his own version of the American Dream. After the shop is vandalized, Arthur hires the energetic Franco Wicks, an aspiring writer with his own vision of what the Superior Donuts could become. But Franco has his own demons and when his gambling debts come due an unlikely friendship crosses boundaries of age, race, and expectation to offer second chances. This play contains adult language, an epic fight scene, and the kind of characters you’ll talk about the next day. And is laugh out loud funny.
Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30PM; Sundays at 3:00PM; www.bte.org
