Theatre Reviews

This play first saw an audi­ence at the MAP/​Scirocco High School Play­writ­ing Com­pe­ti­tion (Portage la Prairie must have a real­ly good dra­ma teacher, because a lot of plays from that city made it to the finals of that com­pe­ti­tion). Any­way, it’s a com­ic ver­sion of the sea voy­age genre that has been with us for a cou­ple of thou­sand years. Doing some­thing orig­i­nal with the sto­ry is a chal­lenge, but play­wright Anna Ger­vais pulls it off.

Adding to the fun are some clever sight gags and a cast that throw them­selves into the spir­it of the thing. I wish that this play had played to a small­er venue, because the size of the Ware­house stage worked against the pace and visu­al images, and a clos­er con­nec­tion to the audi­ence would have helped the play take off.
