    Cliff Cardinal and Karin Randoja are back collaborating for a third time on (EVERYONE I LOVE HAS) A TERRIBLE FATE (BEFALL THEM) which reveals a dark comedy about life, death, and what terribleness lives in between. Cardinal deftly performs multiple characters in this provocative and profound one-man-show, with Randoja’s darkly humorous twist on what it means to be human.

He was named a Canadian Cultural Icon in 2022 (The Globe and Mail) for William Shakespeare’s As You Like It, A Radical Retelling by Cliff Cardinal. The show was produced by Crow’s Theatre and was recently presented by Mirvish Productions as The Land Acknowledgement, or As You Like It at the CAA Theatre.

    For over 30 years Karin Randoja has specialized in creating and directing original devised performances, including A Field Guide to Fevers and Curses, Huff, Cliff Cardinal’s CBC Special, This is the PointGertrude and Alice, Jacinto, Brotherhood: The Hiphopera, Breakfast, and Clean Irene and Dirty Maxine. Randoja is a celebrated founding member of Primus Theatre and The Independent Aunties.
