James Valcq and Fred Alley's The Spitfire Grill is coming to Chicago's Heartland Studio in Rogers Park. This BoHoTheatre production runs September 14-October 14 and is directed by Anna Hammonds and produced by Kaela Altman, with musical direction by Tom Vendafreddo.
The show follows recently paroled convict Percy Talbott, who is looking for a place to start over, and rural Gilead, Wisconsin, seems just the place. She takes a job at the Spitfire Grill, a crumbling diner where the townsfolk congregate and gossip, run by an ornery widow named Hannah.
The cast features Caron Buinis, Daniel Houle, Matthew Keffer, Nancy Kolton, Laura Lindahl, Laura Savage, and Jeremy Trager.
