Welcome to Frank's engine repair shop, where a booze-filled reunion of three childhood buddies takes a unexpected turn. Written by and starring John Pollono, Small Engine Repair is a sharply penned dark comedy for the Internet age. Set in "Manch-Vegas," a town outside Boston, Frank has lured his misogynistic-leaning friends, Swaino and Packie, into his lair under false pretenses. As the crew gets liquored up and lips loosen, a fourth guest arrives, Chad, a spoiled, college jock, who Frank has met playing basketball. With the uncoiling of a few more tales, the players realize why they've all been assembled. Directed by Jo Bonney, whose credits include Neil LaBute's Fat Pig, Eric Bogosian's Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll, and Danny Hoch's Jails, Hospitals & Hip-Hop, the play moves along at a nice clip with just enough time for its jokes and provocative subject matter to marinate.
