The House of Martin Guerre

Review by Doug Gallant

In what had already been an extraordinary summer for the Charlottetown Festival, the producers of the Festival may well have saved the best for last.

The House of Martin Guerre, presented September 18 as a one-night-only staged concert, was absolutely brilliant, a powerful and emotionally stirring tale of love, loss, deception, betrayal and ultimately of sacrifice, played

Summerside pride
Way Up West

by Jan Cox

Nancy Beth Guptill, owner of Sweet Spot Academy, digital and business consulting, conducted a research project recently for the East Prince Women’s Information Centre. The undertaking had a definite Social Justice component to it, asking does cyber violence exist? Who is targeted, who are the perpetrators?
