THE SPITFIRE GRILL
APRIL 24 - MAY 10
PREVIEW PERFORMANCES APRIL 22ND & 23RD
Percy Talbot has just been released from a five-year prison sentence in the early 1990s in Wisconsin. She is trying to find a place for a fresh start, and based on a page from an old travel book, she decides on the small town of Gilead, Wisconsin. Percy’s parole officer finds her a job at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill–the only eatery in this struggling town. The Spitfire Grill is for sale, but with no interested buyers, Hannah decides to raffle it off. Entry fees are $100, and the best essay on why one wants the grill, wins. This award winning musical triumph, with its modern folk score and inspiring story, is a celebration of fresh starts and the power of love and redemption.
