Overview


Synopsis

A failing Italian restaurant in the small town of Pocatello, Idaho, celebrates “famigilia week” in an effort to drum up business and reconnect with its values--a bit contrived, considering the restaurant is one branch of large and impersonal corporate chain. But Eddie, the branch manager, believes in the restaurant and in the town, and refuses to give up on his home even as businesses close and friends and loved ones move on to life outside Pocatello. From acclaimed playwright and MacArthur Fellow Samuel D. Hunter, Pocatello is a comedic and heartfelt look into the changing landscape of middle America, and the flawed and lovable people trying to build a home on shifting ground.
