"Shape-shifting Cliff Cardinal excels in this
visceral tale of addiction, violence and abuse."
One of Canada’s most important emerging theatrical voices, Cree actor and playwright Cliff Cardinal’s acclaimed solo play delivers an unabashed view of the realities facing Indigenous youth growing up on First Nations Reserves across Turtle Island (North-Central America). Huff is a wrenching yet darkly comic tale of Wind and his brothers, caught in a torrent of solvent abuse, struggling to cope with the death of their mother. Huff is a story of Indigenous resilience and, ultimately, hope for the next generation.
