The Spitfire Grill @ Edmonds Driftwood Players (Edmonds)
Inspired by hit the 1996 film, The Spitfire Grill, is a heartwarming and inspirational musical tale of redemption, perseverance and family. 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. The Grill is for sale, but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy convinces Hannah to raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the Grill wins. Soon, mail arrives by the wheelbarrow and things really start cookin’ at the Spitfire Grill.
By James Valcq (music and book), Fred Alley (lyrics and book). Based on the film by Lee David Zlotoff. Directed by Diane Johnston
