Sitting on my Sofa

Players

Review by Kelly McClean

Players, a two-act indie production running at Myrons Cabaret, was written by locals Graham Putnam, Jason Rogerson and Josh Weale and is based on today's pop culture and how it is taking over our lives. Have you ever been caught up in TV, computers, movies etc, then raised your head to find that days, weeks, or even months have drifted by while you lazed around in

Rosewatered Glasses

God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

Review by Sean McQuaid

The latest Left-Hand Theatre production may have come out of left field, but it was definitely worth catching. The world needs more plays like God Bless You, Mister Rosewater. 

This musical satire (based on a Kurt Vonnegut novel and crafted by the celebrated songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken) chronicles the misadventures of

Emily Belongs

Emily Belongs
Emily

Review by Treva McNally

Many people were surprised this year when they discovered a scene from Emily, rather than Anne, on the cover of the Confederation Centre Program. But with this summer's show, Emily proves she belongs on the cover just as much as the little red-headed girl who has brought so much fame to PEI. I saw Emily last year and, like everyone else, enjoyed it but found it too

Watch for the Signs

Dal Segno Trio: West of the Danube

Review by Ivy Wigmore

On Sunday, July 16th, St. Mary's Church featured the Dal Segno Trio's concert featuring the music of eastern European composers, "West of the Danube," as part of the ongoing Indian River Festival. The evening marked the trio's fourth appearance at the festival. Only fitting, really, since dal segno (Italian for the sign) instructs the

Profile: 
Erskine Smith

by Jane Ledwell

If my interview with Erskine Smith were a film, it would open with a long, well-blocked tracking shot: all forward motion, deft obstacle-avoidance, and good lines shot off on escalators. High- energy as he is, he's probably easiest to follow when shot from above with a movie camera. Shots would mostly track him to Victoria, where he and his wife, Pat, are

No Astro Turf Here

No Astro Turf Here
It's an international line-up for this year's PEI Bluegrass and Old Time Music Festival in Rollo Bay

by Charlie Hansen

The time of year has come for all good bluegrass fans to take to the road in search of their favourite summer festival. The folks on P.E.I. are no exception. This time every year the fever strikes in a big way and tent cities spring up like mushrooms all over the country.

Expanding Creative Horizons
Profile: 
Debra James Percival

by Jane Ledwell

The week before Easter, I met Debra James Percival at her Charlottetown home. Upstairs, creativity was springing out of her living room in the form of her children's Easter tree-an explosion of beribboned branches, natural buds opening in the indoor warmth, hung with her pick of forty dozen eggs hollowed, dyed, and painted by her children from the
