CINCINNATI OHIO–MARCH 23, 2017– Opening March 30, 2017 a comedy, SMALL ENGINE REPAIR will run at Clifton Performance Theatre through April 16, 2017.

Producer and Actor Carter Bratton says about, SMALL ENGINE REPAIR: “It’s about life-long friendship and loyalty. What ultimately made me need to produce it is the question it raises about the difference between men and boys and how their actions butterfly effect this modern world… and it’s the funniest most thrilling piece of theatre I’ve read in a long time.”

“What begins as an impromptu reunion of three childhood friends quickly changes gears into a high-octane, edge of your seat roller-coaster of a play with an ending you have to see to believe!” said director, Jared Doren. “SMALL ENGINE REPAIR by John Pollono, is a hilariously crude and irreverent comedy-thriller about middle-aged men living in a fast-paced, social media world they don’t quite understand anymore.”

Featuring: Nathan Neorr, Charlie Roetting, Carter Bratton and Rupert Spraul. Directed by: Jared Doren. Produced by: Carter Bratton, Untethered Theatre, & Clifton Players.

Synopsis: 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 taut, twisty, comic thriller on its breathless course.
