Tickets are now available for MCC Theater’s fall thriller Small Engine Repair. Written by John Pollono and directed by Jo Bonney, the New York premiere runs at the Lucille Lortel Theatre from October 30 through December 8, with opening night set for November 20.
Small Engine Repair stars the playwright, Keegan Allen (Pretty Little Liars), James Badge Dale (World War Z) and James Ransone (The Wire).
In Small Engine Repair, Frank (Pollono), Swaino (Dale) and Packie (Ransone) are buddies since high school, now past their prime. They meet off-hours in Frank’s out-of-the-way repair shop under cloudy circumstances. Enter Chad (Allen), a plugged-in, preppy college jock, whose arrival ignites an explosion of long-simmering resentment and rage in this twisty, comic thriller.
Small Engine Repair premiered in 2011 at the Rogue Machine Theatre in Los Angeles. The play won the Los Angeles Drama Critics Award for Playwriting as well as an Ovation Award and three Garland Awards.
