In the supermarket, when Islanders bump into comedian Patrick Ledwell or musician Mark Haines, they’ve been asking, “Back this year? Are you doing your thing out at the place, there?”

Here’s what they’re asking, in mainland standard English: “Is The Island Summer Review returning to Harmony House Theatre in Hunter River?” And the answer is “Yes—all-new and more Canadian than ever.”

Every summer, comedian Patrick Ledwell and musician Mark Haines create an original set of Island stories, with up-to-the-minute humour and diverse musical styles. This is their fifth season.

The show runs every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday night at 8 pm, until September 8.

The show will take a special look at how the smallest province in Canada fits into a huge country, as Canada celebrates its 150th birthday. 

“P.E.I. is in constant conversation with the rest of Canada,” says show co-creator Patrick Ledwell. “One day, we’re being left off the Vancouver airport map. The next, we’re hearing New Brunswick try to take away our status as Birthplace of Canada. With these cannon shots in the news, there’s plenty of fodder for comedy.”

The show promises stand-up jokes, heartfelt folksongs, fiddles and trumpets, and lots of crowd participation.

“I’m bringing everything I own,” adds co-creator Mark Haines. “I’m excited to play everything from blues guitar to traditional fiddle, and even loop a rap track, all in the same show.”
