Description: Wyatt Heritage Properties Inc. presents the 12th annual Island Storytelling Festival: New Waves. The festival is the opportunity to experience the ancient art of storytelling at its finest. Prince Edward Island is known as a land of stories with unique home-grown storytellers. The festival will feature two different forms of storytelling, each equally entertaining and educational. On both nights the stories will be about the Island and its people. On Thursday, September 29th, storytellers, Dennis King, Cian O’Morain & Mary MacGillivray, Anne Farrell and Ensor Waite will entertain with their own unique styles of storytelling. On Thursday, October 6th the stories will be told through the recording of radio dramas before a live audience. Island historic happenings are written into radio dramas that local voice actors and foleys bring to life in the manner of early live radio.

Eptek is part of the Wyatt Centre complex which houses the Harbourfront Theatre. As the festival takes place over two Thursday evenings plan to take in the many cultural activities spread across the Island as part of Canadian Culture Days, September 30th and October first and second.
