Theatre Production: The Spitfire Grill @ Armstrong Hall: Kimmel Theatre
Feb 27 @ 7:30 pm

By Fred Alley, James Valcq, and Lee David Zlotoff; directed by Caroline Price. 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. It is for sale but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy suggests to Hannah that she 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 cookin’ at the Spitfire Grill.

A soul satisfying … work of theatrical resourcefulness. A compelling story that flows with grace and carries the rush of anticipation. The story moves, the characters have many dimensions and their transformations are plausible and moving. The musical is freeing. It is penetrated by honesty and it glows. – The New York Times

In 2017, award-winning solo performer David Lee Nelson received news that would change his life. At 38 years old he was diagnosed with Stage Four Colon Cancer. He kept a blog of his time in chemotherapy – a heartbreakingly funny chronicle of a disease which affects over nine million Americans. This material became the basis for his newest solo play, created with and directed by Riverside Theatre’s Producing Artistic Director Adam Knight. Stages is not simply a play about sickness: it’s a story of life’s setbacks and surprises, and about searching for hope in the most unlikely of places.

“You say: life is beautiful.

In a country house in Russia at the end of the 19th century, three sisters long to return to the Moscow of their youth. Meanwhile, their sister-in-law wages domestic war. Soldiers in a battalion stationed in town long for the sisters. And across Russia, a cataclysm is brewing.
