Henry's Witty Barb

Wit

Review 
by Sean McQuaid

Margaret Edson’s acclaimed play, Wit, is built around a situation that sounds more like an ordeal than an entertainment: the lingering demise and soul-searching of a woman dying of cancer. Edson’s frank and funny script, however, transcends its grim subject matter to craft an engaging and often blackly amusing character study of a person coming to grips with both her

Rabbit Tales


Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Review by Sean McQuaid

It’s ironic, but increasingly undeniable: the most eclectic and prolific producer of consistently high-quality live theatre in Prince Edward Island these days is Theatre New Brunswick. TNB has been bringing its touring productions to Summerside, PEI for several years now, and has treated Islanders to some great shows. The latest and possibly

Comedy of a Certain Age

Menopositive The Musical

Review 
by Hilary Prince

How about hormone replacement therapy to flamenco music? Want to know the secret of keeping your man despite a sagging body and hot flashes? Would you believe parsley? Did you doubt women “of a certain age” can vamp, sing, dance, act, fool around with the energy of teenagers at a rage? Not if you’ve seen Menopositive The Musical, a delightful hit

Life and Death on the Farm

Raining Cats & Daughters

Review by Hilary Prince

Margie Carmichael’s first play, Raining Cats & Daughters, opened with 10 performances in Nova Scotia and a single performance at Georgetown’s King’s Playhouse, PEI, to a packed house that brought the audience to its feet with calls for “author, author.”

This is a play “about death” according to Carmichael. However, it is also a play about

Fiddles and Funny Faces
Barachois

Review by Sean McQuaid

Prince Edward Island's own Acadian fab four have come home yet again this year, playing at the Confederation Centre of the Arts in September. After paying their dues in the Confederation Centre’s smaller venues over the years, the quartet have graduated to the main stage—and while the small group may not need the extra space, they certainly fill it with their

Foreboding Fruit

Walkabout

Review by Sean McQuaid

Evan Brown hit the PEI theatre scene like a sucker punch to the gut with his self-penned one-man show, Rorschach, an unsettling portrait of a mentally ill murderer. His subsequent theatrical bouts included a round as the bloodthirsty madman Renfield in Dracula: The Undead, though Brown's show biz work took a back seat to controversial political activities for a

Farewell


Ireland Meets Scotland

Review by Hilary Prince

The Celtic music and dance show, Ireland Meets Scotland, written and produced by Kevin Jeffrey, played at the BIS and Orwell Corner all summer. This "Celtic Fiddle & Dance Show" takes us back in time to Ireland in 1689 when Protestant forces landed in the north to subdue the Catholic forces of James II.

The Jeffrey twins, Colin and Tristan, set

The Tunes of Summer


Roy Johnstone

by Joseph Sherman

The first time I heard Roy Johnstone play Gershwin's "Summertime," he cannily segued from that ripe standard into a Celtic set. It worked. The Winnipeg-born instrumentalist's eclectic taste in music fuels his knack for fusions.

It was just a matter of time before his exploration of smart 20th-century pop and jazzy stuff produced a repertoire that now includes other
