Words worth

On a First Name Basis

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Ah, Victoria-by-the-Sea. The seashore, the shops, the tree-lined streets... it’s been several years since I last sampled the village’s enduring charms, chief among them the lovely Victoria Playhouse, so I was keen to review that venue’s premiere of Norm Foster’s 2011 comedy On a First Name Basis

Full disclosure: the show’s directors Rob

Spectacular

Kronborg 1582 

Review by Doug Gallant

When Cliff Jones’ Kronborg 1582 was first staged at the Charlottetown Festival in 1974 it was like nothing audiences here had ever seen before. Certainly the Festival had staged big productions before but this was different. It was bold, it was audacious, it was adventurous and it was exciting to behold because it came at you from every direction. It was

Alive theatre

Mrs. Warren's Profession

Review by Jane Ledwell

When my mother was in school, she learned French from books: reading, writing, and parsing without hearing or pronouncing the language. When I was in school, I learned plays and classical theatre on the page. I have read and studied (and even taught) more plays-as-text than I have seen performed. Before last night, the closest I ever came to

Infectious

Barefoot in the Park

Review by Ann Thurlow 

One of the most fun things you can do at the theatre is watch an actor fully inhabit his role while at the same time giving a sly wink to the audience. Sure, he’s going to offer you the straight goods, but also knows his character is wacky and he doesn’t mind sharing the fact.

Warm-hearted

The Birds and the Bees

Review by Cassandra Bernard

Recently, I had the pleasure of seeing one of the summer’s most talked about performances, The Birds and the Bees, performed at the Victoria Playhouse in Victoria by the Sea. The story touches on every aspect of “the birds and the bees” in a playful and light-hearted tone. 

Though it was a simple set—a view of the upstairs in a farmhouse
