    Cliff Cardinal returns to Crow’s Theatre for a special, one-week presentation of his critically acclaimed, award-winning solo show HUFF.

    HUFF is the savagely funny and harrowing tale of Wind and his brothers as they struggle with their mother’s death, a reserve school system that’s failing them, and a solvent-abuse problem. Wind’s fantastic, gas-induced dream world blurs his harsh reality in this powerful, disturbing, and comic tale of family, love, and despair.

    “One of the most important playwrights and performers in Canada” (Toronto Star), Cliff Cardinal is known for his dark humour, compassionate poeticism, and acclaimed solo shows Stitch, Cliff Cardinal’s CBC Special, and William Shakespeare’s As You Like It, A Radical Retelling by Cliff Cardinal.

    Karin Randoja is an award-winning director, actor, teacher, singer, and composer who regularly collaborates with Cliff.
