A Couple of Stand-up Guys

Lorne Elliott and Derek Edwards

Review by Ivy Wigmore

Lorne Elliot is a funny guy. I mean, that hair! The lanky wind-blown, storm-tossed look of the man, and the perennially baffled expression! What, is he joking? Well, sort of. Seeing Elliot on stage is like a performance of "The Misadventures of Mr. Lorne Elliot," as he describes the series of disasters, both large and small, that seem to make

Rosewatered Glasses

God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

Review by Sean McQuaid

The latest Left-Hand Theatre production may have come out of left field, but it was definitely worth catching. The world needs more plays like God Bless You, Mister Rosewater. 

This musical satire (based on a Kurt Vonnegut novel and crafted by the celebrated songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken) chronicles the misadventures of

Emily Belongs

Emily

Review by Treva McNally

Many people were surprised this year when they discovered a scene from Emily, rather than Anne, on the cover of the Confederation Centre Program.

I saw Emily last year and, like everyone else, enjoyed it but found it too

Watch for the Signs

Review by Ivy Wigmore

On Sunday, July 16th, St. Mary's Church featured the Dal Segno Trio's concert featuring the music of eastern European composers, "West of the Danube," as part of the ongoing Indian River Festival. The evening marked the trio's fourth appearance at the festival. Only fitting, really, since dal segno (Italian for the sign) instructs the

Life Sucks, Then You Die

Woyzeck

Review by Sean McQuaid

Woyzeck was a funny thing for the UPEI Theatre Society to tackle as its latest major production. Funny as in odd, not funny as in ha-ha (there's not much to laugh at in Woyzeck, though there are a few black chuckles to be found). It's a somewhat unsatisfying play-short and none too sweet, an unfinished meditation on man's inhumanity to man and the resultant erosion

A Play in Progress

Shameless Hussies

Review by Sean McQuaid

Shameless Hussies isn't a play-not yet, anyway. It is, however, a play-in-progress, and January 14 saw a relatively early draft of the script presented at the Arts Guild in a staged reading, one of the latest in a series of Playwright's Cabaret presentations produced by TheatrePEI.

If I can slip into first person for a moment, I may as well be open about
