Life Sucks, Then You Die

Woyzeck

Review by Sean McQuaid

Woyzeck was a funny thing for the UPEI Theatre Society to tackle as its latest major production. Funny as in odd, not funny as in ha-ha (there's not much to laugh at in Woyzeck, though there are a few black chuckles to be found). It's a somewhat unsatisfying play-short and none too sweet, an unfinished meditation on man's inhumanity to man and the resultant erosion

Family Reunion

by Ivy Wigmore

Artist Julia Sarradet paints portraits of the family of Arthur Newbery For the past year or so, Julia Sarradet has been living with a house full of very demanding guests. They clamour for attention day and night, she says, and as if that weren't enough, she dreams about them. Well, they are at least fairly quiet, since none of them are in the land of the living-no, I'm not talking

Windows 2000

A Cultural Life
by Joseph Sherman

"Windows," says Heywood Shelkey. "Windows?" I echo. "And lots of `em," Hey continues. "Spectacular suckers. But none of that tinted or one-way glass.

"Have you ever seen so much solid wall without hardly a corner window to peep through or let the light in? Why in the name of Doofus MacDuff they'd build a rig like that in the downtown heart of Cht'n is a puzzle to

The ids of March

A Cultural Life
by Joseph Sherman

Is it only sixty days since the odometer clicked over? Since Hey Shelkey went to ground? March-in like a roaring line.

Might the CBC perish from the death of a hundred cuts? I've not owned a TV since B.S. (Before Seinfeld), but I've my thinking toque on and don't see how Ottawa can desire radio's demise, as so many sourpusses mutter. Granted, the

Gardening Delights
by Nancy Oakes

As the time to make the rounds of garden centres and nurseries begins, I would ask that this year you take note of where the plants come from. I don't mean Ontario or a tissue culture lab in Holland. I mean more who found them, who brought them from the wild, who bred them. As I begin my fifth year of hybridizing Daylilies, I am more aware of just how long it takes

Planting Favourites

Gardening Delights
by Nancy Oakes

For the last few years, the acquisition of new perennials has taken a back seat to the daylilies, but last spring the mania began again, albeit in a more controlled fashion. Here a few of my favourites from last year.

Artemisia lactiflora `Guizhou' would not, for most, be readily identified as an Artemisia, which is primarily associated with silvery foliage. It's

Lighthouse Gallery Fills a Need

by C.J. Veach

Over the winter a number of Prince County artists have had the chance to display their works at the same venue. The Lighthouse Gallery, located at 401 Water Street in Summerside, has been the off-season home for these works which will soon be making the summer gallery circuit. Local artist and retired dentist, Dr. John Robertson, is responsible for the gallery that shares space with

A Sound Room with a View

by Dave Gould

Gordon and Charlene Belsher operate Guernsey Cove Parlour Productions from their home by the shore
It was three years ago that I was last at Gordon and Charlene Belsher's home and recording studio in Guernsey Cove. At the time, they were putting a wrap around verandah on their house to take advantage of the beautiful view of the Northumberland Straight. It was there that I had one of
