The Magic of Theatre
The Magic of Theatre

The Rainmaker

Review by Ann Thurlow

The Watermark Theatre is the very most comfortable place that I’ve ever been.to see a play. The wide, breezy verandah, the elegant lobby, the inspired choice of wicker chairs, the ample leg room immediately put the theatre goer in an expansive mood.

So, also, does the pre-production announcement that the Watermark is offering ten dollar seats all summer long to

How to Eat Like a Local
How to Eat Like a Local
A highly subjective guide for visitors to PEI

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

A few years ago, a tourist asked me where Islanders go to eat lobster. I explained that, generally, Islanders eat lobster at home on their own picnic tables.

“Oh, so Islanders don’t go to the lobster suppers?” he said.

“Oh no,” I said. “They go in droves. But they don’t go for the lobster—they go for the rolls and the pie.”

Chowing Down

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

What I would like, please, is that recipe for a chowder that feeds a thousand people. Because everyone at Village Feast in Souris agrees, it’s the best chowder they’ve ever had. And those mashed potatoes! So light, so redolent of sweet Island butter. In the middle of a hurricane, people came together to make this great food—the beef and the lobster and the shortcake—and they

As Old as PEI

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

The young man’s clear gaze focuses just behind us. His voice is clear, too, as he sings about a farm lost to…what? The vagaries of weather, the banks? In the end, it’s all the same. Behind him, photos—not of a graceful, dilapidated farmhouse, but inside, where the torn sofa and unshuttered windows speak only of disappointment. It is a story as old as PEI. And here, at a play

by Ann Thurlow

Minh Hoang Truong pours hot water into a small metal cylinder that sits on a drinking glass. Inside the cylinder is finely ground coffee. I lift the lid of the cylinder, stick my nose in and smell strong coffee and, although there’s none in it, chocolate. The coffee drips slowly onto a layer of sweetened condensed milk.

When the coffee has dripped through, I remove the

Road Food

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

I am eating lunch in a parking lot and I don’t mind a bit. Hush puppy? Po’boy? Food truck? It sounds like road food. So if I’m sitting by the road, so much the better. A po’boy? It’s a sandwich. And this one has beef and lettuce and pickles and some kind of sauce that I am not ashamed to lick right off the plate. I take a swig of iced tea. Sure, that’s Ellen’s Creek right there. But it

Sunday Morning

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

The Emeralds are belting out a tune at the Trailside’s gospel brunch. They are finding things in this song even the writer didn’t imagine. The audience is rapt; we shiver a little. A pretty waitress offers eggs, the cook steps out of the kitchen for a minute to savour the music.

Whatever you seek on Sunday morning, be it respite, be it redemption, you’ll find it here. I

Yummy Naan Bakery does wonders with saffron

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

The first thing you notice when you enter the Yummy Naan Bakery is the bright yellow. It’s everywhere, as befits a bakery that knows a thing or two about saffron. You’ll be offered a cup of saffron juice, a bright yellow drink that is sweet and tastes exactly like a morning in June.

If you’re there on a Monday, Wednesday or F

If Not for an Artist

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

This crazy art show is just an illusion. The wings of the Sternocera Aequisignata beetle seem to be green or, in a certain light, blue. And yet—they’re actually just tiny cells that reflect the light, a trick of the eye. They aren’t really art, either. And yet Matt Bowness has made them into art—clothing, sculpture, jewelry—into things we don’t suppose an insect’s wing should be. No

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

Some say it’s lobster they crave after a long winter. Others want only tart, pink rhubarb or something fresh and green. But, for me, the true taste of spring is maple syrup. It’s our very first clue that things are waking up; even before we’ve shaken off our winter doldrums, maple trees start producing sap. Bright days, cold nights, the warmth of a little fire—these are the ver

Sara and Sadat’s restaurant features Afghani specialties

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

It’s hard to find a minute to talk with Sara Sadat. Her new restaurant won’t open for a couple of hours and already she’s hard at work making gulab jamun—those delectable bits of deep fried custard so loved in India and Pakistan (and by me). The baklava, that lovely Middle Eastern treat, has already been made and its

Extra Measure

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

From the first roll of the timpani, something is up. The PEI Symphony is playing a concert in Zion Church, though really, what it feels like is the other way around. What it feels like is that the magnificent space is an instrument itself. The vaulted ceilings resonate as if the concert master has tuned them, too—as if the conductor has found some magical extra measure i
