COME ALIVE AGAIN with the company that brought you the Jeff Award winning production of High Fidelity, Refuge Theatre Project presents the The Spitfire Grill set in a real diner!

A feisty parolee follows her dreams, based on a page from an old travel book, to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah's Spitfire Grill. It is for sale but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy suggests to Hannah that she raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow full and things are definitely cookin' at the Spitfire Grill.

«A soul satisfying...work of theatrical resourcefulness. A compelling story that flows with grace and carries the rush of anticipation. The story moves, the characters have many dimensions and their transformations are plausible and moving. The musical is freeing. It is penetrated by honesty and it glows.» — The New York Times

Music and Book by James Valcq; Lyrics and Book by Fred Alley; Based on the film by Lee David Zlotoff.

Directed by Jeff Award winner Christopher Pazdernik with musical direction by Jeff nominatee Jon Schneidman.

Featuring an ensemble of Lauren Paris, Emily Goldberg, Katherine Condit, Nicole Michelle Haskins, Gerald Richardson, Alex Christ, Matt Patrick and Cathy Reyes McNamara.
