Tragicomedy

A Misfortune 

Review by Sean McQuaid 

The Charlottetown Festival takes a lot of guff from critics about artistic integrity, cultural nationalism and such whenever they stage yet another recycled American jukebox musical (like the admittedly entertaining confection Million Dollar Quartet); but in the spirit of fair play, we grumpy media types should also take note when the Festival

Profile: Aaron Hastelow

by Jane Ledwell

“Where did the summer go to?” sings the cast of Anne of Green Gables on Confederation Centre mainstage. But Aaron Hastelow, the first Islander to win the role of Gilbert Blythe and performing the role for a second season, there’s no time to be wistful. With his first album released and a once-in-a-lifetime performance as a musical Hamlet, there’s little

Bangers and mash

A filling Island favourite at The Churchill Arms

#TryThisAndrew
by Andrew Sprague

To say it’s been a corker of a summer would be a massive understatement. From the beginning of July until the middle of August we had rain three times during daylight hours. Twice it came down in sheets for an hour or two, and only once did it rain steadily all day. The rest was beautiful sunshine. On that solitary

Air Force Heritage Park in Summerside

Way Up West
by Jan Cox

You don’t have to be ex-military to enjoy, marvel and reflect as you follow the brick pathway that winds through the Heritage Park at the former CFB Summerside, Slemon Park. Opened in August 25, 2011, the beautiful green space, now dotted with grand gardens, is home to the Commemorative Stone Project. The pathway winds around three former

A gift of Island poetry: Renée Blanchette

Curated by Deirdre Kessler

MY HEART IS A WHEEL

My heart is a wheel,
or a whale fluke, a snail’s antenna,
a bat cave where a squirrel lives
and an unfurling tape measure.

You are the apostle,
and an angel,
a dewdrop,
a pen and a lighted porch
in the pre-dawn.
Definitely not an empty bucket
or curled leaves on the stair. 

Pain is a jungle panther
looking for prey,
leaving a phosphorous trail,
equatorial

Upstreet launches Day Drift Craft Soda

The New Creative
by Cassandra Bernard

There is a new craft drink product on the market and no, it’s not a craft beer this time. The new Day Drift Craft Soda line made a splash all across the Island this summer with its unique artisanal herb, fruit and botanical flavoured sodas.

With no other product like it on the market in PEI, the line of sodas has been a

Calm Baretta
Talking Bands

by Evan James Ceretti

Charlottetown’s newest band has listeners up in arms, and that’s without having played their first show. Calm Baretta is Josh Carter (guitar, lead vocals), Laura Oakie (keys, vocals), Nigel Haan (bass, vocals), and Jordan Oakie (drums). Carter, Haan and Laura make up the band’s writing team.

You could say Calm Baretta was a long time in the making. Carter and

In praise of late summer vegetables

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

I just realized I had gathered all the ingredients for ratatouille without even thinking about it. It’s not difficult at this time of year. You need eggplant, onions, red pepper, zucchini and tomatoes and they’re all in season right now. I have made ratatouille with other than fresh local vegetables because I craved it so, out of season. But here’s the point of this really
