A soul-satisfying, country-flavored work of theatrical imagination, The Spitfire Grill glows with an abundance of warmth, spirit, and goodwill. A feisty parolee named Percy follows her dreams to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill. Aged and troubled, Hannah would like to sell the Grill, but there are no takers in the forgotten town of Gilead. A simple idea proposed by Percy brings new life to the Grill and renewed hope to the people of the town, including one long gone but nor so far away. A graceful and compelling story buoyed by soaring and instantly infectious melodies.
