Relatively Speaking its one funny play

Comedy comes to The Guild in Charlottetown as ACT (a community theatre) proudly presents “Relatively Speaking”, the celebrated farce by British playwright Alan Ayckbourn that opens March 29, the 45th anniversary of its London premiere.

Directed by the team of Brenda Porter and Paul Whelan, the shenanigans begin in 1960s London and lead to a lush manor house, where the meeting of two very different couples quickly turns the quiet English countryside on its ear in an entertaining combination of mistaken identity, mischief, and merriment.

The quartet of performers who bring this funny business to life are not new to the ACT stage. Ashley Clark, Adam-Michael James, and Keir Malone all appeared together in last fall’s highly successful production of “Sweeney Todd”, while Barbara Rhodenhizer makes a triumphant return with yet another of her memorable characters. Hosting the festivities is ACT veteran Anthony Welsh.

The laughter of “Relatively Speaking” rings for a limited, four-show engagement – March 29, 30, and 31 at 7:30PM, concluding with a Sunday matinée April 1 at 2:00PM. Tickets are $20 ($18 for seniors, students, and unwaged) and are available through The Guild’s web site, www.theguildpei.com, or by phone at 902-620-3333.

PEI Community Theatre Festival

Once again, ACT is producing the PEI Community Theatre Festival to mark World Theatre Day.  The festival brings together a diverse group of amateur companies from around the province and gives them a venue, an audience, and an adjudicator.  Wade Lynch, a popular past-adjudicator, returns this year.  The PEICTF takes place on Saturday March 24th, beginning at 1pm at the Carrefour Theatrea (5 Acadien Drive - behind the QEH).  ACT also has a submission for the festival, the hilarious “Sure Thing” by David Ives.  Admission is by donation, and by popular demand, there will be cinnamon buns and refreshments for sale.  Check back for a more detailed time-line of performances.  For more information, or to volunteer for Front of House, please e-mail laurakbird@hotmail.com.
