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.
Early 20’s. Pretty, if a bit rough-edged, her face declares the strength of her youth and a sadness beyond her years. Her accent has a southern Appalachian cadence. Strong folk/country belt to ‘D’, some head voice required.
A tough-skinned and flinty old bird with a short, no-nonsense manner bordering on the bitter. Mezzo
A Plain, soft-faced creature with a shy, almost ethereal manner. Shimmering fold soprano with strong belt to ‘D’.
Out-of-work foreman of the stone quarry. Frustrated working man clinging to the past. Solid folk/rock voice with an edge (Top ‘G’)
Sheriff Joe Sutter:
A young, small-town policeman with an appealing intensity and a restless nature.
Strong folk tenor to a ‘G’ (touches an ‘A’)
Postmistress and busybody, a woman with narrow eyes and a sour tongue.
A mysterious figure who never speaks. An actor with powerful eyes and a very strong sense of his body.
