Funnyman Lorne Elliott's take on Island life. When Bruno MacIntyre decides to rent his ramshackle cottage to summer tourists, the wacky merriment begins. Lorne Elliott, comic master of mirth and mayhem, takes us to Savage Bay on the south shore of Prince Edward Island, where the hapless Bruno turns to his clever and caustic Aunt Tillie for help in securing tenants. First, the cottage, inherited with a bad reputation from Bruno's ne'r-do-well father, must be renovated. Then, Bruno must duel with his aunt's wry insults and sly plans, a sardonic would-be author, and two torrid tenants. Elliott's celebrated gifts for sharp-witted repartee and vivid characterizations are in full force. So, too, are Elliott's keen eye and ear for our fumbling aspirations, bittersweet banterings, self-deceptions, hard-won wisdom, surprising tenderness, and zany outcomes. The Fixer-Upper--the novella adaptation of his play, Tourist Trap--is classic Lorne Elliott, with a brash and cheeky Maritime flavour.

About the Author:

Canadian born LORNE ELLIOTT has performed from Newfoundland to New York City, from Los Angeles to Australia and points in between. Lorne started performing in 1974 as a folk musician in East Coast Canada. At the same time he kept writing fiction as well as songs, monologues and one-liners. The outcome of such a training is a very special show of comedy and music, totally original, entertaining, foolish and uplifting. Along with his unique performance style it is the timelessness of his material, joined with keen observations on today's trends that make LORNE ELLIOTT 's work so special.
