Percy Talbot has just been released from a five year prison sentence for manslaughter. She is trying to find a place for a fresh start, and based on a page from an old travel book, travels to the small town of Gilead, Wisconsin. The local sheriff, Joe Sutter, who is also Percy’s parole officer, finds her a job at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill – the only eatery in this struggling town. The Spitfire Grill is for sale. But with no interested buyers, Hannah decides to 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 getting hot at the Spitfire Grill. This musical triumph is an inspiring celebration of fresh starts and the power of what one person can do.


Good People

Directed by Nancy Kiracofe

strong language

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month's paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who's made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

There's A Burglar in My Bed

Joan Scheller lives with the great love of her life, Sandy, with whom she raises cannabis in the potting shed. In an effort to hide their relationship from her overbearing sister-in-law, Olivia St. Claire, she introduces him as her psychiatrist. Before long, Vinny the Enforcer, a quintessential Italian mobster, masquerades as her security guard, while her son, Chris, on the run from Vinnie, is forced to wear a dress and become her daughter Christina. Further complications occur when her new neighbor, Rachael, creates chaos and confusion wherever she goes. Everyone wants a session and Sandy is forced to listen and give misguided advice. To everyone’s surprise it seems to work.
