SYNOPSIS & INFORMATION
A casual reunion of three longtime buddies ultimately betrays a darker purpose in Island ETC’s production of SMALL ENGINE REPAIR written by John Pollono. SMALL ENGINE REPAIR is a comedic thriller for the social media age. Island ETC’s remount of this controversial and successful show promises to be darker, more violent, and even more thought provoking following some recent events.
Former high school buddies Frank, Packie (D.J. Martin), and Swaino (John Carraro) meet after hours one night in Frank’s out-of-the-way repair shop under cloudy circumstances that only Frank seems to have a handle on. As Frank breaks out the good scotch, he kicks into motion an evening that abruptly accelerates from grievance airing and macho posturing to reveal a shocking darker purpose. The match that ultimately sets things ablaze is the arrival of an unlikely visitor, a good-looking college jock Chad (Justin Gonzalez).
John Pollono’s fast-paced comedic psychological thriller is brought to life on the ETC stage by the same previously brilliant cast. Pat Daugherty plays Frank the owner of the repair shop and host for the evening, DJ Martin portrays Packie who mostly drinks away his days and still lives with his grandmother, John Carraro is Swaino who still relies on his good looks and one-night stands to feel successful, and Justin Gonzalez is Chad who has no idea what he has stumbled upon in this repair shop.
Due to subject matter and language, ETC does not recommend their production of SMALL ENGINE REPAIR for children.
