A Tattle Tale

The School for Scandal

Review by Anne Thurlow

It may be a challenge to our better angels, but everyone likes a little gossip now and then. As Sir Peter points out in the prologue for A School for Scandal, we like gossip a whole lot more when it’s not about us.

The play was first produced in 1777. But its themes, and its message, are fresh over 200 years later: gossip is fun and vicious and it can

Dinner for One


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

One of two things usually happens when you go out to eat on your own. Either you don’t speak much, avoid eye contact and make it a quick meal, or you meet some people, stay a while and enjoy yourself. Either it’s just OK, or it’s great. A few nights back I found myself dining alone in a restaurant in Saint John, New Brunswick. What happened through the course

New Strings from Ireland


Téada

Review by Joseph Sherman

The first thing I notice at the concert is that Téada is not Danù. One youthful player less (both ensembles feature immensely talented musicians in their 20s), and no pipes or vocals, but it’s more than that; it’s the angle of approach to the music and the arrangements.

On the first, the Téada folk are more forthcoming, perhaps even more knowledgeable, as

Simply the Best


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

It’s not too often I find myself out on the town in Summerside on a Tuesday night. But a couple of weeks ago some friends and I happened to be in the western capital looking for a good time. We had business to take care of in the day, but by 6 o’clock that had wrapped up and it was time to recharge for the night ahead. Now, you’d think five independently

Feast Dinner Theatre

Review by Michelle René Sexton

Food, laughter, music are rolled into one hilarious routine, played by a small group of young, talented actors. This is what to expect during an evening at Feast Dinner Theatre at the Brothers Two Restaurant in Summerside. My first dinner theatre was Summerside Night Live, which was a cast made entirely of rookies. “With respect to the new cast,
