No Weird Ingredients

No Weird Ingredients
Nan Ferrier publishes a limited edition cook book with a difference

by Sue Gallant

Ever longed for a no-nonsense Canadian cookbook containing recipes void of those weird ingredients you can never find in stores? Just such a cookbook has recently been written and published on PEI. Supplies, however, are limited. The author wrote the book as a family heirloom and less than 50 copies remain. The

Good Things Come in Threes


Theatre New Brunswick productions at the Jubilee Theatre

Review by Sean McQuaid

Three girls and three guys. Sounds like the latest uninspired TV sitcom, or maybe the roster for an especially unambitious orgy. In actuality, though, it's a lazy reviewer's shorthand for the casts of Theatre New Brunswick's two latest touring productions: The Attic, The Pearls & Three Fine Girls and The Drawer

Flavour of the Month: Hot Peppers

It might still be cold outside, but the heat's turning up in the kitchen

by Bonnie Caldwell

Have you noticed those unusual-looking peppers in the produce section? Have you stared at them and wondered what should I do with them? They range in colour and size from green to red, small to large, pointed to round. But that's not all-look down the aisle and you see bags of dried chilies. Help, what's a

Cultural Exchange

The Mikado

Review by Sean McQuaid

With its January-February 2001 production of The Mikado, the classic Gilbert & Sullivan comic opera, ACT (A Community Theatre) serves its audience a saucily surreal slice of ancient Japan, generously garnished with sprinklings of present-day Prince Edward Island. It might not be the most seamlessly satisfying mixture since peanut butter and chocolate, but it's

Seasonal Spectre

Ethan Claymore

Review by Sean McQuaid

Ever since Charles Dickens sicced a trio of sensitivity-training spirits on Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, the concept of ghosts on a Christmas mission of redemption has been an enduring part of our culture; but while many subsequent writers have conjured their own Yuletide phantoms over the years, few have managed to create something distinctively entertaining

Left Done Right

A Left Hand Adventure

Review by Sean McQuaid

"A Left Hand Adventure" (a trio of one-act plays staged by Left Hand Theatre at the Arts Guild on October 18-21) is a small wonder: Outside of Me, Sleep Tight and Cowboy Mouth all employ small casts, minimal sets and modest production values to craft compelling short stories of people at odds with fundamental truths, with each other, and with

What the Fred?


ACRONYM

Review by Sean McQuaid

Are you tired of life making sense? Were you one of those kids who loved to torture insects or small animals? Do you like your theatre weird, spooky and nigh-unto-incomprehensible? If you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, ACRONYM might well be your hallucinogenic cup of tea.

Written and directed by Mickey Acorn with technical direction and stage

Have Wand, Will Conjour

The Conjuror's Suite

Review by Sean McQuaid

Theatre is alive. While seldom as visually spectacular as its cousins film and television, live theatre offers an unmatched immediacy and, at its best, a sense of wonder. Nothing taps that sense of wonder more effectively than a magician; an artist who not only performs before in the presence of an audience, but whose performance consists of amazing and
