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.
