Right and Wrong
Murder in the Cathedral

Review by Patrick Ledwell

T.S. Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral is, among other things, a drama about whether or not intentions determine the outcome. Locating us in the strife between church and state in 12th century England, Eliot shows soon-to-be-saint Thomas Becket pressing outside his spiritual authority as archbishop, much to the irritation of his former friend King Henry I

Controlled Craziness

Riot Act

Review by Patrick Ledwell

Like the word couplings “resident alien” and “family vacation,” the phrase “riot act” is an oxymoron. Even so, “Riot Act” is a fitting name for an ensemble performing as part of the Stanley Bridge Festival, running throughout the summer in the newly-rechristened Barn Theatre. Their music, with its roots firmly planted in traditional soil, strikes the peculiar contradiction of craziness an

In Perfect Harmony

Borealis String Quartet

Review by Patrick Ledwell

Johannes Goethe once observed, “I call architecture frozen music,” and in many ways, you can see the century-old St. Mary’s Church in Indian River as this metaphor made real. During the performance I attended, I could easily imagine my surroundings as the outcome of a musical moment crystallized and then scaffolded with wood, the melodic lines converted to ar

Cultural Alchemy
Acadie en Musique

Review by Patrick Ledwell

As a ship captain announces in an opening scene, the performance “Acadie en Musique,” playing throughout the summer at the Carrefour Theatre, is a voyage charged with an impossible mission. The show aspires to celebrate and somehow capture the soundtrack to 400 years of Acadian history, a task made no easier by the embarrassment of musical diversity that thi

Baiting the Storyline
Fish or Cut Bait

Review by Patrick Ledwell

From the moment I stepped into the Victoria Playhouse to see Fish or Cut Bait, it was clear that a cultural motif was at work. Behind a frothy plywood sea swell, the set (another richly imagined staging from W. Scott MacConnell) featured a single, standard-issue palm tree that located me immediately on thematic ground.

Some of my favorite variations on the

Worth the Drive

Here on the Island

Review by Patrick Ledwell

I was almost late for the performance of "Here on the Island" at the Jubilee Theatre in Summerside. Rather than taking the shorter, inland Route 2 on the drive out (as good reason and time permitting would dictate), I found myself putting on a turn signal for the meandering road that outlines the South Shore's red-cliffed coves.

The decision turned out

Fodder of Comedy

Tourist Trap

Review by Patrick Ledwell

The main question in my mind before seeing Lorne Elliott's "Tourist Trap" at Victoria Playhouse was how well his comedy would survive the loss of its main weapon: Elliott himself. In his live shows and popular radio series, he marches himself into service as his own comedic cannon-fodder. The persona is a floppy-haired genius of misfortune, able to locate (and
