The second annual The Guild Presents: The PEI Pay-What-You-Can Theatre Festival (PPTF)will offer Islanders another evening of short comedies by David Ives, family-friendly lunchtime improv, and a duo of interactive play readings. The 2018 PPTF will be on stage at the The Guild from February 23 through March 3. 

The cast and creative team includes Adam Brazier, Samantha Bruce, Nathan Carragher, Dian Miguel, Mark Fraser, Becca Griffin, Ainsley Kendrick, Katie Kerr, Melissa Kramer, Jeana MacIsaac, Donnie Macphee, Catherine O’Brien, Marlane O’Brien, Graham Putnam, Brandon Howard Roy, Rosie Shaw and Suzanne Wilkie. 

Featuring five diverse one-act plays, Time Flies, follows last year’s production of shorts by David Ives, It’s All In The Timing.

"Theatre that aerobicizes the brain and tickles the heart. Ives is a mordant comic who has put the 'play' back in playwright… A wondrous wordmaster." —Time Magazine 

New this year is Lunchtime Leftovers: Improv Games with Becca and Friends. It’s family-friendly, BYOL (bring-your-own-lunch), and never the same twice.

Also new this year is a duo of interactive play readings. The first reading, One Man, Two Guvnors by Richard Bean, will be presented February 24 at 2 pm. Directed by Adam Brazier, the cast for this award-winning classic slapstick farce features over a dozen of Island performers. Join them for a romp through the complicated world of small-potatoes gangsterism, cross-dressing, mistaken identity, and thwarted romance. Stay for the Q&A with the cast and creative team after the show.

The second reading is Pulitzer Prize winner ‘night, Mother by Marsha Norman, featuring Marlane O’Brien and Melissa Kramer as a mother and daughter in crisis. This play explores the final hour in the life of a young woman who has decided that life is no longer worth living. It will be on stage March 3 at 2 pm followed by a Q&A with the PPTF team. 

“The Guild is thrilled to be presenting the 2nd annual PEI Pay-What-You-Can Theatre Festival  and we are excited to be teaming up with an incredible group of artists both established and emerging. We see this as an incredible opportunity for every Islander to experience live professional theatre here at The Guild," says Executive Director Alanna Jankov.
