Kingston: “Cliff Cardinal's CBC Special” visits Theatre Kingston February 3-12

Thursday, January 12, 2023

You’re listening to the radio in your kitchen. The program moves from the host to the story, the story to the song. An evening of words and music with internationally-lauded writer and performer Cliff Cardinal as he performs original, dark and catchy folk songs; miraculous stories of familial resilience; legends of Turtle Island survival; and new contributions to the ongoing mythology of the Canadian experience. This is Cliff’s eagerly anticipated solo follow-up to Huff, and teams him once again with acclaimed director/dramaturge Karin Randoja.

Named by The Globe and Mail as a Canadian Cultural Icon in 2022, Cliff Cardinal is a polarizing writer and performer known for black humour and compassionate poeticism. His solo theatre productions STITCH, HUFF and CLIFF CARDINAL’S CBC SPECIAL have won numerous awards.


Created and Performed by Cliff Cardinal;

Directed by Karin Randoja
