“It ain’t horse fat, we’ll give you that! It’s fantastic. It’s dramedy at its finest. It moves with grace and elegance, humor, and emotions, all packaged up perfectly for an evening of exceptional entertainment the likes of which you won’t find just anywhere.” – Amanda Gunther, Theatre Bloom, 5/28/16
In a historic uptown Chicago neighborhood, cantankerous ex-hippie Arthur Przybyszewsk comes to work to find that his donut shop has been vandalized. Shortly thereafter Arthur hires an African-American college student, Franco Wicks, a young entrepreneur with plans to modernize Arthur’s 30-year family business. This provocative comedy by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning Tracy Letts (author of Killer Joe) explores the challenges of embracing the past, facing the future and the redemptive power of friendship.
