Lovely Stories

The (Post) Mistress

Review by Jane Ledwell

“You see how these letters enter my heart!” laughingly laments post-mistress Marie-Louise Faucon, played by Martha Irving. The one-woman musical The (Post) Mistress by Tomson Highway is playing at the Victoria Playhouse where the audience can, indeed, see precisely how letters enter the small-town Ontario postmistresses’ heart and life, in a visually and

The Island Summer Review 4

Review by Darcy Cudmore

P.E.I. funny men Patrick Ledwell and Mark Haines are back for another year of their Island Summer Review at the Harmony House Theatre in Hunter River.

One Thursday night I gathered among the visitors (or ‘come from awayers’ as Ledwells calls them early on in the show) and Islanders to take in the great mix of comedy and music that Ledwell and Haines have put together for

Blithe Spirit

Review by Ivy Wigmore

Noel Coward wrote Blithe Spirit in 1941, at least in part to serve as a distraction from the Second World War. Writing about first night, Coward noted that the audience “had to walk across planks laid over the rubble caused by a recent air raid to see a light comedy about death.”

The play takes place in a parlour that seems straight out of Coward’s era, right down to the

Deceptive Rainbows

The Glass Menagerie

Review by Sean McQuaid 

The Glass Menagerie is one of the greatest plays ever written. Granted, academics, critics and audiences have been saying that since its 1945 debut, but it bears repeating. Tennessee Williams’ semi-autobiographical portrait of the disintegrating Wingfield family is just as poetic, funny and poignantly haunting now as it was all those decades

Inconstant Moon

Salt-Water Moon

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Adding charm and historic heft to this summer's Kings Playhouse slate, Salt-Water Moon is a sweet slice of retro romance wrapped in Newfoundland lore. Written by Canadian playwright David French in 1984, the award-winning Moon was a "prequel" companion to French's 1972 hit Leaving Home and its assorted follow-ups from 1973, 1988 and 2001. All five plays

Stan Rogers: A Matter of Heart

Review by Darcy Cudmore

It was opening night at The Guild on Tuesday for the Stan Rogers: A Matter of Heart show. Fans of Rogers’ music will not leave disappointed after seeing the cast perform over 25 of his most well-known folk songs, telling Stan’s stories as if they were their own.

Geordie Brown is the director, designer and definitive leader of the production. He is also a huge part of the

Spoon River

Review by Jerry Laird

Once again the Charlottetown Festival has put together a fantastic line up. The 2016 season promises to be fun and entertaining.

One show that will surely have people talking for years to come is Spoon River. The play is based on Edgar Lee Masters 1916 book of poems Spoon River Anthology. In his book, fictional dead citizens give their own epitaphs through Masters’

Earning the Ideal

Anne & Gilbert—The Musical

Review by Jane Ledwell

The advertising tagline of Anne & Gilbert is “Anne of Green Gables in love,” but the great fun of this musical is that it takes a mighty lot of effort to convince Anne of this possibility. In a play that celebrates the strength and sufficiency of women’s friendships, the female characters have some work to do to persuade themselves to
