Farewell


Ireland Meets Scotland

Review by Hilary Prince

The Celtic music and dance show, Ireland Meets Scotland, written and produced by Kevin Jeffrey, played at the BIS and Orwell Corner all summer. This "Celtic Fiddle & Dance Show" takes us back in time to Ireland in 1689 when Protestant forces landed in the north to subdue the Catholic forces of James II.

The Jeffrey twins, Colin and Tristan, set

The Tunes of Summer


Roy Johnstone

by Joseph Sherman

The first time I heard Roy Johnstone play Gershwin's "Summertime," he cannily segued from that ripe standard into a Celtic set. It worked. The Winnipeg-born instrumentalist's eclectic taste in music fuels his knack for fusions.

It was just a matter of time before his exploration of smart 20th-century pop and jazzy stuff produced a repertoire that now includes other

A Royal Good Time


The Drill Queens

Review by Matt Perry

Their kingdom is wide and crosses the Maritime borders. Their subjects are loyal beyond belief. And PEI's own Drill Queens showed why they are reigning queens of comedy on opening night at The Comedy Barn in Stanley Bridge.

The Drill Queens-Cynthia Dunsford and Laurie Murphy-have performed across the Maritimes including the Halifax Comedy Festival and the

House Rules

A Rowboat in the Attic

Review by Sarah Crane

Inkerman, a grand house that used to be just off the North River Road in Charlottetown, has an enthralling story. Colonel John Hamilton Gray built it before the birth of Confederation in Charlottetown. When Nancy Beck spent her childhood summers there, Colonel Gray's ghost used to roam the halls. The Colonel haunted several generations of Beck's family.

Coming Home

Review by Michael Nesbitt

In the heart of the Evangeline region, the last thing one would expect to find is an English-language dinner theatre. At Le Village in Mont Carmel, La Cuisine à Mémé makes that option available with its production of Coming Home.

This is the second year in a row that La Cuisine has added an English show to its traditional summer schedule, staging it Tuesdays

The Maritime Way of Life

Review by Treva McNally

Summer on Prince Edward Island would not be complete without a visit to Victoria-by-the-Sea, a picturesque little village filled with unique shops, antiques, restaurants, and art and crafts. And a visit to Victoria has to include a show at the Victoria Playhouse, the little theatre with marvelous acoustics which is celebrating its twentieth

Review 
by Sarah Crane

Horse high, bull strong, pig tight is a saying that embodies the meaning of life for Peter Stuart. It can make sense of any situation. Although he is not quite sure what it means he knows it is important.

Stuart, played by Rob MacLean, is the main character in Kent Stetson's one-man play, Horse High, Bull Strong, Pig Tight. He is an
