Meanwhile in Ward 16

Unknown

No doubt about it. Ward 16 is the city’s embarrassing problem child. That doesn’t stop long-time incumbent City Councillor Jamie Cox from scheming and planning and doing whatever it takes to make Ward 16 the best it can be.

Partly scripted, partly improvised, Meanwhile in Ward 16 (A Charlottetown Soap Opera) is a six-part comedy serial playing Saturday nights this summer at The Guild. Following the exploits of some of the ward’s more eccentric and odd characters, each episode features its own plots and twists while also encompassing a larger season-long story arc. Come for one show, come for them all; every episode is different, and all are sure to entertain.

Featuring Graham Putnam, Rob MacDonald, Nancy McLure, Kassinda Bulger, Cameron MacDonald, along with weekly special guests. Meanwhile in Ward 16 is proud to have McLean’s Overhead Garage Doors as title sponsor.
