“The Spitfire Grill” at Chatham Players

“The Spitfire Grill”
Music by James Valcq
Book & Lyrics by Fred Alley

To a town with no future, comes a girl with a past…A spirited, touching musical version of the hit film (winner of the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival), THE SPITFIRE GRILL is a moving story of a young woman’s search for new direction in her life. When Percy Talbot is released from prison, she moves to the small town of Gilead in the hopes of starting over. Under the watchful eyes of the skeptical townspeople, she meets the unforgettable Hannah Ferguson, the indomitable owner of the Spitfire Grill. While forging a friendship, deep secrets are revealed…as well as an elaborate plan for a contest unlike any other. A glistening, magical new musical, THE SPITFIRE GRILL is not only a restaurant, but a heartwarming dream of a better life for all of us.
