Culture Shock is a comedy Lorne Elliott wrote for he and Kevin Blackmore as a one-act play back in 1984 and, over the years, it has been added to, subtracted from, shaped and  reshaped into a full cast theatrical performance of three actors playing nine characters to create a hilarious tale.
It tells the story of Hillyard Philpott who, innocent as the day he was born and bored with life in his small outport town, strikes out for Montreal. All is not as it seems though, as vast criminal complications unfold, suprise twists reveal themselves, and a collection of odd  characters interact from the Philpott household in Newfoundland to Laval Penetentiary in Montreal and back again.
Culture Shock has been performed at the Just For Laughs Festival, and indeed all across this country and in the states, and taken up by any number of amateur and professional troupes. Such authorities as The Globe and Mail, The Guardian, and CBC radio have called it “A Maritime Classic”  and “A wacky sendup” and described it as creating “continuous laughter”. The last time the hit production was played on the Island was 15 years ago, at The Victoria Playhouse.
The show will be playing 8 pm from Tuesday, June 25th through Sunday, June 30th. Tickets are $25 total including taxes and online fees.
