The Watermark Theatre and The Haviland Club present Yr. Obedient Servant as public performances and fundraisers for their organizations.

Yr. Obedient Servant, by New York playwright Kay Eldridge, is a one-man, two-act play showcasing the 18th-century author, conversationalist, and personality who put together the first true dictionary for English. 

Dr. Terry Pratt will bring Samuel Johnson to life. Dr. Pratt is Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Prince Edward Island, and taught 18th-century literature and linguistics for 35 years. His director is Ann Boyles. Costumes are by Pam Jewell.

Admission at both venues is by donation, at the door. Dr. Pratt will take questions after the performance. Show takes place at 7:30 pm November 22 at The Watermark Theatre, North Rustico, and at 7 pm November 24 at The Haviland Club, 2, Charlottetown.

Yr. Obedient Servant is available for presentations in private venues. The play takes 80 minutes plus intermission; Dictionary Johnson, the self-contained first act, takes 40. Either can be done in any space at least 15 by 10 feet. To enquire about a booking call 675-3672 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
