Drill Queens

Review by Jonathan Stewart

The Drill Queens return for their fourth year of skit comedy at the Charlottetown Festival. Now numbering only two, the Queens present a whirlwind show of an hour and a half of new and classic sketches. Cynthia Dunsford and Laurie Murphy present a whole slew of characters that titillate and stimulate the audience. It is delightful to see the Charlottetown

A Heavenly Blend

Forever Plaid

Review by Jonathan Stewart

The Charlottetown Festival's production of Forever Plaid is everything a play can and should be. In a time when plays are getting more gimmicky, technical, and flashy to compete with Hollywood, Forever Plaid relies on talent and stage charisma to entertain. It's the story of Smudge (Christian Bellsmith), Sparky (Craig Evans), Frankie (Joe Levesque), and

Drive Dull Care

Hold the Haggis

Review by Ivy Wigmore

Summer doldrums got you down? Too hot? Too cold? Need a general tonic and pick-me-up? If you answered "yes" (or "no") to any of the above, head out to Orwell Corner Historic Village Monday night for a performance of "Hold the Haggis."

Hold the Haggis is one current incarnation of the estimable PEI performers Margie Carmichael, Steve Sharratt, Roy Johnstone and

Hood Ornaments

Review by Sean McQuaid

In 1999, the Homegrown Productions writer-producer team (Graham Putnam, Jason Rogerson and Josh Weale) debuted with Players. This summer, the HP trio return with a new comedy, Hood Ornaments; and like its 1999 ancestor, HO bears more than a slight resemblance to the films of Kevin Smith: lots of pop culture references, sexual content, and a primarily

Women's Ambitions

Little Women

Review by Jane Ledwell

Finding substantial dramatic roles for young women has been a perennial problem in non-musical theatre, but Linlea Theatre Company's new production of Little Women at the Arts Guild takes on the problem head-on. The play features five roles for young women in a script adapted from Louisa May Alcott's classic novel by Lindsay Kyte. Cast, crew, director, and

Tradition in the Kitchen

The Old Soldier

Review by Sarah Crane

La Cuisine à Mémé dinner theatre at Le Village in Mont-Carmel returns this year with The Old Soldier. The same play as last year only with one slight difference, this year they are showing it in English, as well as French. However, when taking in the English version it quickly becomes apparent that despite the language change, this play has retained all of its

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

Ain't That a Shame

Ain't That a Shame
Shameless Hussies

Review by Jane Ledwell

PEI is apparently not known for its shameless hussies-and if Anne of Green Gables figures in anybody's kinkier fantasies, I quite frankly don't want to hear about it. Is it any surprise that in Kathleen Hamilton's new original play three good Island girls get themselves into fixes that only imported, hussy-fied guardian angels can get them out of?
