The Spitfire Grill
Based on the 1996 film, The Spitfire Grill is a touching and inspirational musical tale brimming with beautiful folk melodies. Percy, a spirited parolee, follows her dreams to the small town of Gilead, hoping to create a new life for herself. She takes a job working at the Spitfire Grill, which has long been up for sale with no takers. Percy convinces its owner, Hannah, to raffle it off with a letter-writing contest, and the entire town is changed as a result in this story of perseverance, grace, and friendship.
