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
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?

A Couple of Stand-up Guys

Lorne Elliott and Derek Edwards

Review by Ivy Wigmore

Lorne Elliot is a funny guy. I mean, that hair! The lanky wind-blown, storm-tossed look of the man, and the perennially baffled expression! What, is he joking? Well, sort of. Seeing Elliot on stage is like a performance of "The Misadventures of Mr. Lorne Elliot," as he describes the series of disasters, both large and small, that seem to make

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
