IVAN ROOF-US OPENS IN
TO RELIEVE STRESS; PLAY COMING TO NY
On Saturday and Sunday, November 6th and 7th, hundreds of
Grenadians packed the Grenada Trade Center to see the comedy-play
“Ivan Roof-Us,” the first major cultural event since Hurricane Ivan
devastated Grenada and several other Caribbean islands and parts of
Florida last September.
By a twist of faith, the Grenada Trade Center is one of the few
buildings that Ivan failed to demolish.
“We hope that ‘Ivan Roof-Us’ will help relieve the stress that
all Grenadians at home have endured and are enduring since
September” says playwright Chris DeRiggs of the Heritage Theatre
Company of Grenada. “The local production of Hurricane Roof-Us is a

sister islands such as Barbados, Tobago, Jamaica, St. Vincent and
St. Lucia who endured the wrath of Ivan something to make us all
laugh and enjoy,” a thrilled DeRiggs said in a phone call to New
Some of Grenada’s best comic personalities such as Wayne Bubb,
Lisa Grappy, Deleon Walters, Robert Whyte and Deborah Gilchrist are
in “Ivan Roof-Us.” Most cast members lost a roof; other member homes
were severely damaged and a cast member grandfather passed on as a
result of the brutal hurricane.
Also in “Ivan Roof-Us” are Jamaican actress Jean Kelly Whyte and
American Ayana Clarkson.
“Ivan Roof-Us” (When Lightning Strikes) will be staged as a
benefit event at Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts, Brooklyn
College, NY on Saturday, November 27, 8:00pm.
The play will no longer be performed in the Maryland/Washington
area and Bronx, NY. The cast can only do a limited tour.
Total proceeds from the New York performance will be given to
institutions helping children in hurricane-torn Haiti and Grenada.
Tickets, $38 & $42, are on sale at Brooklyn College Box Office.
Tickets are also available thru mail order and On Line.
