A quintessentially American musical, The Spitfire Grill tells the story of a young vagabond, Percy, who decides to start her life anew in the rural Wisconsin town of Gilead. There she finds a home and acceptance with Hannah, long time owner and operator of the lonely and broken down restaurant, the Spitfire Grill. As Percy works her own world into balance, she is joyously revived by the quiet town, which in turn is revived as well. With a rousing American folk and bluegrass score and a poignant portrayal of small town existence, The Spitfire Grill warms the heart of any wanderer and all those who yearn for and cherish home. The New Yorker called the play "touching and memorable," and The New York Times described it as "a complete work of theatrical resourcefulness. It is penetrated by honesty and it glows."
