Helter Smelter reintroduces audiences to "New Brunswick's Blue-Collar Philosopher," Lucien, a fictional, opinionated millworker who first made a brief appearance at a dinner theatre in 1984 and has since been the star of four full-length plays. As Helter Smelter unfolds, Lucien, dressed in a blue flannel shirt unbuttoned at the collar, settles on the shores of the Bay of Chaleur to fish smelt with his nylon net. The bilingual character then endears himself to the audience by delivering a tongue-in-cheek soliloquy about world issues, politics, and his inability to form meaningful relationships with mermaid figureheads. Suddenly, global warming disrupts his respite by melting the icy surface of his frozen shantytown, thus isolating his fishing hole from the rest of Canada and triggering a hilarious tirade chock full of government criticisms.

Loved our night out with wild kratts. So much fun. They did an incredible job on the show. I would have been happier with closer seats but all was fantastic.
