10. HOT TICKET: LETTS'S SUPERIOR DONUTS
The first UK production of Tracy Letts's play, Superior Donuts, has opened at the Southwark Playhouse, London. In this black comedy-drama, from the writer of August Osage County, an ambitious young employee tries to inspire his ageing boss to revive his run-down doughnut store. "Beautifully judged," says The Independent. Until 8 March.
