Pear Ave. serves up ‘Donuts’

Pear Avenue Theatre is slated to present Tracy Letts’ “Superior Donuts” Thursday through July 14 at 1220 Pear Ave., Unit K, Mountain View. Thursday’s show is a preview; Friday is opening night.

The comedy follows Arthur and his unexpected relationship with Franco. Arthur is a Polish-American former draft resister who owns a rundown donut shop in Uptown Chicago. Franco is his energetic but troubled African-American assistant who wants to update the establishment with lively music and healthful menu options.

Ann Kuchins directs a cast that includes Doug Brook, Christopher P. Carter, Alonzo Cook, Stephanie Crowley, Durand Garcia, Brandon Jackson, Chase Kinsey, Ray Renati and Patricia Tyler.

Performances are scheduled 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. There will also be a performance 8 p.m. July 3, but no show July 4. A discussion with the director and cast is set for Sunday.

Tickets are $15-$30; the preview is pay-what-you-can.
