Really excellent show. Extremely funny and hard-hitting. The acting is strong and intimate; the dialogue is witty and intelligent. The whole play is just over an hour, but the power of its content stuck with me. One of the best theatrical experiences I've had...

Welcome to Frank’s Small Engine Repair Shop: Manch-Vegas, New Hampshire, where men behave badly and deep secrets are revealed. It's a gritty, candid and darkly comic thriller exploring loyalty, alienation and social networking. It's an alcohol-soaked, bro-mantic thriller.
