Reid Campbell

I'm a playwright and composer. My work has been seen and heard across Canada for the past forty years. I am inspired by local stories and history and I've written comedies on the themes of climate change, species at risk and pluralism. Lately, Laurel Darnell and I have adapted the book 'Sweet Ride' by Ann Barry for the stage. It is the story of a bicycle trip taken in 1943 by four women from Blockhouse NS, determined to see their music idol, Don Messer, play live in Charlottetown PEI. 

My comedy with music 'The Rum Runners' Ball' will be performed as dinner theatre at the Bluenose Lodge in Lunenburg, NS on Wednesday evenings, July 10 - August 28, 2024. True stories... mostly...
