Percy Talbott, just released from the Taycheedah Correctional Institution for Women, arrives in the small town of Gilead, Wis., with the dream of starting life anew. Hannah Ferguson, the owner of the Spitfire Grill (which happens to be for sale), hires Percy despite the vocal opposition from the community. Suspicion grows when Percy convinces Hannah to raffle off the Grill instead of selling it. Entry fees are $100, and the best essay on why you want the Grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow and new life is infused into the community. Based on the 1996 hit movie, The Spitfire Grill will warm your heart and remind you of the power of redemption and renewal in a messy world.

** The Spitfire Grill is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
