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


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

Toronto Film Festival

by Lyndsay Kyte

TIFF: the nickname of 40 percent of grade five girls and the acronym of the biggest film festival in North America. The Toronto International Film Festival took place September 8­17, 2005 at various venues across Toronto. It was a chance to take in some of the 335 films from 52 countries, wait in line-ups longer than those in the airport at Christmas and to

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

Written by Montreal native Lorne Elliott and performed by Prince Edward Island actress Laurie Murphy, How I Broke Into Showbiz premiered at City Cinema in Charlottetown. Elliott wrote the play specifically with Murphy in mind because of her well-known stage presence and ability.

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,

Down on the Farm

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

As I write this I am a locked out member of the Canadian Media Guild, the union that represents 5500 employees at the CBC. I’m not about to use this column as a forum for my thoughts on the whole issue, it’s not really the place. I will tell you this though, it’s no fun on the picket line. We’ve been out six weeks now, and some of us are starting to feel the
