7th Story Window Ledge Story

March 8, 2019 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm at The Guild
Fast-paced and full of energy, this sophisticated satire takes place on the window ledge of a seven-storey apartment building where a man is contemplating suicide.

Unknown

Endlessly interrupted by a variety of quirky, self-absorbed tenants, he becomes drawn into the absurdity of their daily lives.

7 STORIES is a meta-theatrical gem of a black comedy, full of eccentric characters with a wistfully existential conclusion.

This is the Festival’s first full-length production, and first Canadian work. 2019 marks 30 years since the premiere of this Canadian classic by multi-award winning Canadian playwright Morris Panych.

Dyed in the Wool

Dyed in the Wool by Chelsea Lynne at The Guild through March 3rd.

Black yarn from a black sheep is “dyed-in-the-wool”, it’s part of its nature, just as Islanders are known for deeply ingrained traits such as being friendly, hardy and community forward.

This exhibition will show images that represent the island through the scattered hay bales, the red and silver fox and our red dirt roads all explored through felting wool from our local Island sheep. Whether you were born here or are just passing through I hope the memories and stories shared here convey the beauty and the simplistic life of our Island.

Raised On TV (The New Season)

February 15, 2019 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm at The Guild
Raised on TV takes some of our favourite television shows, adds a little twist, and presents them live on stage. And this year, RoTV is all-Canadian content, because it’s easy for us to forget just how much fantastic television has come, and continues to come, from Canada.

Now in its third season, the directors were once again given certain rules to follow such as set pieces, scene length, and most importantly strict faithfulness to the dialogue. Beyond that they have complete freedom to interpret their material in any way that inspires them, creating not only unexpected, laugh-out-loud moments, but a unique night of entertainment with a completely Canadian twist. Adam Gauthier, Richard Haines, Dana Doucette, and Gordon Cobb have each taken on the task of casting and directing two Canadian shows each and will be working with Mariève MacGregor to ready them for the stage.

Raised on TV: WE ARE CANADIAN promises to have a something for everyone, with just the right amount of light-hearted fun that’s needed as dead of winter sets in. So sit back, put down the remote, kick up your feet, and get ready for Raised on Television: WE ARE CANADIAN!

Raised on TV: WE ARE CANADIAN is performed February 15 and 16 at The Guild. Doors open at 7:30 with the show starting at 8:00. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased through The Guild box office (online or at the door). For more information, contact Grace Kimpinski at rotvpei@gmail.com
