Best of The Island Fringe Festival

Dynamic Duos 

Review by Sean McQuaid

All three plays have something in common beyond quality entertainment: they’re either two-handers

Realizations

This is Her Life 

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Like some of the other shows at this year’s Island Fringe Festival, Realizations is dark, brave and quasi-autobiographical. Staged by Small Town Queer Menace Productions, this play explores issues regarding rape culture and forging one’s own sexual identity, as written by Kandace Hagen and directed by Rory Starkman. Based in part on incidents

The Island Fringe Festival

Fringe Fried  

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Your crumbling correspondent somehow made it through the Island Fringe Festival’s newly supersized slate of ten shows in one humid, tiring-yet-fun August weekend. Limits imposed by my old nemeses time and space mean a few shows (Cardboard Countess, Half a Star, Realizations and Wild Card) are featured in expanded reviews while the rest of the

Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™

Welcome Visitor

Review by Doug Gallant 

Anne of Green Gables returned to the stage of the Charlottetown Festival to find she is still P.E.I.’s most welcome summer visitor.

More than 50 years after the curtain first rose on an orphaned girl with red hair and freckles waiting at the train station to begin a new life with a new family in Avonlea the desire to be part of her journey has never

Dial “M” for Murder

Intriguing

Review by Jane Ledwell

Regular readers of my reviews over the years here will know that my partner is, uh, a reluctant theatre-goer, so it is a testament to the consistent quality of the Watermark Theatre’s productions that he suggests we go there at least once a summer. This year his pick was Dial “M” for Murder. Reader, he was not disappointed.

Frederick Knott’s 1952 play (the basis
