Eddie manages an Italian chain restaurant in Pocatello—a small, unexceptional American city that is slowly being paved over with strip malls and franchises. But he can’t serve enough Soup, Salad & Breadstick Specials to make his hometown feel like home. Against the harsh backdrop of Samuel D. Hunter’s Idaho, this heartbreaking comedy is a cry for connection in an increasingly lonely American landscape.
“Samuel D. Hunter evokes a world in which identity itself has come to seem confusingly mass-produced... Pocatello suggests that while the brand names may have changed, the blues sung by quietly desperate middle Americans still have the same old lyrics.” - The New York Times
"Hunter, as warmhearted a dramatist as can be experienced these days, crafts Pocatello as if it were a Robert Altman film.” - Entertainment Weekly
“A touching production, both heartbreaking and funny, with an excellent cast, thoughtfully directed by Davis McCallum.” - Associated Press
