ACT Play Reading: The Weir, by Conor McPherson


Described as “beautifully devious”, “gentle, soft-spoken, delicately crafted work,” and “a modern masterpiece”, The Weir follows a group at an Irish pub swapping stories with a supernatural slant. 


This coming June 27 (Thursday), come out for a reading of the full text of The Weir by Conor McPherson! Our last reading of excerpts from this spooky Irish play generated a great deal of interest, and now we're going to dive into the full text. And as if that isn't exciting enough, this reading will be held at the newly remodeled Guild! Come take part and read the script aloud, or feel free to sit and listen as we bring this play to life.

When: Thursday, June 27, 6-9 pm
Where: The Guild, 111 Queen Street
Admission: Free!

ACT has been going through the process of downsizing our inventory and we realized there was an important story of the P.E.I. arts community to be told. The walls of the Beach House were covered in mounted posters from the last three decades, and the exhibition of those posters and other key memorabilia was a visual testament of ACT’s contributions to P.E.I.’s community arts scene.

Seeing all of these pieces showcased in one place allowed visitors to get a taste of the ambitious efforts of the many people who have shaped the organization and who have shared their talents with Island audiences. We wanted to share the creativity, vitality, talent and heart of ACT’s many shows - and to capture the spirit of community theatre that is the very essence of ACT .... an organization dedicated to fostering and encouraging amateur theatre in Prince Edward Island.

29 Years of ACT:
A celebration of Community Theatre
March 19-28, 2024

A celebration of 29 years of community theatre was on display at the Hilda Woolnough Gallery at The Guild from March 19th to the 28th in a new exhibition by ACT (A Community Theatre). ACT  hosted a visual display of mounted posters, costumes and props from the many dozens of shows we have produced since ACT was founded in 1995. 

The 10-day exhibition was also a fundraiser for ACT, which is currently undergoing a significant transition. Since the early 2000s, ACT has rented a storage and set building facility known as the ‘Beach House’, by generous accommodation of the owner. Now the Beach House has been sold and ACT will need to find new space if possible.
