What a year!

2010 presents lots of fod­der for an­nual Re­vue

The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

To say 2010 was a year like no other would be an un­der­state­ment.

Hur­ri­cane Igor blew in like a lion, leav­ing floods and havoc across the land. And Hur­ri­cane Danny went out like a lamb, leav­ing a lead­er­ship vac­uum at Con­fed­er­a­tion Build­ing.

Even the Ris­ing Tide crowd, who put to­gether the an­nual Re­vue, have been left trau­ma­tized by it all. Mark Critch is climb­ing the walls at 22 Min­utes. How could Danny leave us? It’s go­ing to be a grand old Ir­ish Tory wake at Re­vue this year, with the man him­self com­ing up out of the cof­fin.

You won’t be­lieve who shows up! So many mem­o­ries! Tears in New­found­land; re­joic­ing in the streets of Ot­tawa and Que­bec; and the Night of The Liv­ing Dead in the cau­cus. And that’s only Danny. There will be the ‘ bat­tle’ for the lead­er­ship; the makeover of the new kinder and gen­tler Jerome — af­ter the doc­tors get him on the op­er­at­ing ta­ble. Then there are the loom­ing ques­tions. Where will the wa­ters from Muskrat go? Will Wik­iLeaks re­veal Cabi­net’s se­cret e-mails? Will Cecilia get her bear this year? Will Poppy end up at the se­nior’s home? What will life be like with three women at the helm of the three pro­vin­cial po­lit­i­cal par­ties?

Re­vue 2010 prom­ises all the an­swers. But it’s not all pol­i­tics.

Fol­low the an­tics of the hur­ri­cane sur­vivors — no power, no food, but the army ev­ery­where. Watch as they hunt for any moose left stand­ing. Lick your chops as Pu­rity Fac­to­ries runs out of hard tack and fish ‘ n brewis is no more.

Fol­low Nanny and Poppy as they try to get into the se­niors’ home, and lots more.

Trin­ity Con­cep­tion au­di­ences will have a chance to catch Re­vue 2010 when it comes to the Princess Sheila NaGeira The­atre in the Con­cep­tion Bay Re­gional Com­mu­nity Cen­tre in Car­bon­ear next week.

Re­vue’s an­nual visit to Car­bon­ear opens Jan. 18 and runs un­til Jan. 23

Re­vue 2010 was cre­ated by Donna Butt, Rick Boland, Glenn Downey, Rory Lam­bert, Amelia Manuel, Jim Payne, Tina Ran­dell, John Shee­han and Berni Sta­ple­ton.
