SMALL ENGINE REPAIR
By John Pollono | Directed By Jo Galloway
WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU MIX 4 DEVILISHLY GOOD-LOOKING ACTORS WITH BEER, WHISKY, SOCIAL MEDIA, CLASSISM, SEXISM,A HEAVY DOSE OF MACHISMO & A FEMALE DIRECTOR?
WE BRING YOU THE TAUT, TWISTY, WELL-TOOLED PLOT OF JOHN POLLONO'S 'SMALL ENGINE REPAIR.'
Former high school buddies Frank, Swaino and Packie—now past their prime—meet off-hours one night in Frank's out-of-the-way repair shop under cloudy circumstances that only Frank seems to have a handle on. Enter Chad, a plugged-in, preppy college jock, whose arrival ignites a long-simmering resentment that sets this whip-smart and brutally funny play on it's breathless course.

I'd see it again!"
"Small Engine Repair is clearly a winner."
I was engaged with these characters and story from the very first entrances. These were recognizable people but the twists and turns of the plot were a surprise! ...a great night of theatre."
"It takes strong chemistry to believe the close bond that is at the heart of this story. All four actors shave it in spades."
"Jo Galloway's direction is fluid."
"The ending may have you squeamish...but the rest of us will surely be talking about it long after we've left the theatre."
