One Yellow Rabbit Presents


Native Earth Performing Arts

Winner of the 2015 RBC Tarragon Emerging Playwright Prize, Indigenous playwright Cliff Cardinal is one of the most exciting new voices in Canadian theatre.

Huff is the wrenching, yet darkly comic tale of Wind and his brothers, caught in a torrent of solvent abuse and struggling to cope with the death of their mother. Wind’s fantastic dream world bleeds into his haunting reality, as he’s preyed on by the Trickster through the hallways at school, the abandoned motel he loves more than home, and his own fragile psyche.

With his signature biting humour and raw, vivid imagery, Cardinal expertly portrays more than a dozen characters in his captivating solo performance.
