Stunned as a Bag of Hammers


Culture Shock

Review by Jane Ledwell

In his quest for tourism dollars (or a way to make Islanders stay home and spend money as though they were tourists), PEI Tourism Minister Philip Brown could take pointers from the Victoria Playhouse. The Playhouse relies on a strong core of Island theatregoers who, if they like a show, send along all the folks from away who enjoy their Island hospitality. The

Village Theatre


The Washing Machine

Reveiw by Kumari Campbell

Garden variety village theatre is alive and well in St. Peters Bay this summer. The original village courthouse, built in 1874 and in use for local court proceedings until the late 1960s, has been beautifully restored as a community theatre and museum. In its second year of operation, the theatre is concentrating on promoting local entertainment. To

First Among Equals

Here on the Flight Path

Review by Ivy Wigmore

Looking for an antidote to the summer doldrums? Norm Foster’s Here on the Flight Path, playing at the Victoria Playhouse until September 5th, is a very funny, not-too romantic comedy—perfect late-summer fare. Flight Path, as actor-wannabe character Angel would likely call it, is small-theatre friendly, with an uncomplicated set, a minimal cast, and a

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Review by Pan Wendt

If you’re going to do Shakespeare outdoors, A Midsummer Night’s Dream seems a natural fit. This year Play in the Park, Inc. chose to follow up last summer’s successful debut, a delightful version of Twelfth Night set in Victoria Park's tennis courts, with the Bard’s most famously woodsy play. This year producers Laurie Murphy and Jason Rogerson opted

Anne of Green Gables—The Musical

Review by Joseph Sherman

With the sad passing of Norman Campbell, Anne of Green Gables: the Musical has finally become an official legacy. Its creators have lived to see their wildest dreams transcended—by a Canadian musical for the ages, built upon a literary phenomenon and a contemporary PEI icon. Exploitation aside, there’s naught wrong with a good myth soaked

Matinee Performance


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

I don’t find myself indoors very often on Sunday afternoons. Especially beautiful, sunny, summer, Sunday afternoons. Golf, frisbee, beaches and just relaxing in the sun are far too attractive for me to turn down most of the time. But every once in a while there’s a really good reason to go inside, even on a sunny, summer, Sunday. On this occasion it was a
