Based on a 1996 film of the same name, The Spitfire Grill details the story of a young woman who is released from prison and decides to start a new life in a small mid-western town. She finds a place for herself working at the Spitfire Grill. But she – and the town – have old wounds that need healing, and it takes an unusual contest to pull everyone together to learn from one another and about themselves. The show is a tuneful and stirring tribute to small town life, and offers a charming and honest tale of hope and redemption. Additional details about the show (and the original cast recording is available) at www.thespitfiregrill.com.
