Letters Home from Camp Leaky Lake



In Letters Home From Camp Leaky Lake we meet some adorable campers. Slowly they take their seats amongst the audience waiting for camp to start. As we see Patrick (Jesse Harlton) fidget with his flashlight or hear Abigail (Sara Bruno) tell us all about how this is her fifth year at camp, the scene is perfectly set for a delightful summer flashback. However, the script races through ghost stories, summer crushes and the whole process of learning how to fit in as you reach adolescence way too fast. Like, way too fast. Leaky Lake simply skims the surface, but it’s the detailed characterizations that manage to make it into the play that are truly charming. These promising actors just need a little more script to work with. —Kathleen Bell

    A look back into what childhood was like for many of us, this light comedy is very relatable to anyone who attended summer camp. A real pleasure.

    From the witty one-liners to the hilarious character choices this show had the crowd laughing the whole time. It is sure to attract a diverse audience of young and old and keep everyone enthralled. The set design and lighting (Kris Chiumento-Technical Director) was a pleasant suprise not to mention the very talented actors (Michael Paruby, Jesse Harlton, Quinn Hinch, Sara Bruno, Kaylin Johnson and Caitlin Goruk). Letters Home From Camp Leaky Lake is brilliantly scripted piece that is a must see at the Edmonton Fringe this year.


    This was an absolute delight. The entire group of us laughed from start to finish. Highly recommend it!


    I went with my boyfriend and we both laughed our bums off. I’m not sure what the reviewer was thinking… Perhaps her inability to not make homonyms errors also impacts her ability to have a sense of humor. Go see it. Just go.
