On a First Name Basis

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Ah, Victoria-by-the-Sea. The seashore, the shops, the tree-lined streets... it’s been several years since I last sampled the village’s enduring charms, chief among them the lovely Victoria Playhouse, so I was keen to review that venue’s premiere of Norm Foster’s 2011 comedy On a First Name Basis

Full disclosure: the show’s directors Rob

Spectacular

Kronborg 1582 

Review by Doug Gallant

When Cliff Jones’ Kronborg 1582 was first staged at the Charlottetown Festival in 1974 it was like nothing audiences here had ever seen before. Certainly the Festival had staged big productions before but this was different. It was bold, it was audacious, it was adventurous and it was exciting to behold because it came at you from every direction. It was

Fiddler’s dream

Fiddler’s dream
Profile: Gary Chipman

by Jane Ledwell

"Listening to (Don Messer and his Islanders as a kid, I was just a kid dreaming,” says Gary Chipman. They were “the best band of its kind in the world at the time,” he remembers. And with an ear to CFCY radio, from the age of five (“about a hundred years ago,” he jokes), Gary learned traditional fiddle tunes in Don Messer’s distinctive style. Soon, he was

Summer lunch

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

The crows wake me before the sun comes up. Are there more crows this year or are they just noisier? Might as well accept the fact that I won’t go back to sleep; and that’s a good thing, for today our friend Marjorie is coming to lunch.

I told Marjorie that I would make a quiche: so simple, no trouble. Actually quiche is a fair bit of trouble, but it doesn’t

The meat man

The meat man

Chow
by Ann Thurlow

Jordan Liantzakis just did something no one in PEI has done for forty years. He got a license to operate a slaughterhouse. It’s telling that it’s been that long—food production has grown from something done on family farms to something done by large companies. Jordan wants to change that, at least in his neck of the woods. 

Getting the slaughterhouse up and running is just

The Island Honey Wine Company in Wheatley River

While there is no shortage of wine lovers in the world, and on PEI, it is rare that you will hear someone claim to be a mead lover. Charles and Laura Lipnicki of The Island Honey Wine Company in Wheatley River might just change that.

They are producing a range of mead wines that are created from ingredients produced on their 56-acre organic farm, La
