Huff written & performed by Cliff Cardinal
Produced by Cunning Concepts & Creations
After touring extensively across Canada and Australia, this award winning this award winning, breathtaking show finally comes to Edinburgh 2018 as part of CanadaHub.
Huff is the wrenching, yet darkly comic tale of Indigenous brothers, caught in a torrent of solvent abuse and struggling to cope with the death of their mother. Their dream world bleeds into haunting reality, as they’re preyed on by the Trickster through hallways at the old Residential school, the abandoned motel they love more than home, and their own fragile psyche.
With his signature biting humour and raw, vivid imagery, Huff is a daring solo show by award-winning Indigenous playwright Cliff Cardinal, one of the most exciting new voices in Canadian theatre.

Cliff Cardinal and the development of Huff
“We have disparaging rates of youth suicide. Sexual abuse is a dark part of our national history. First Nation’s people are still fighting to reclaim parts of our culture that were stolen in genocide. Huff is a punk show. It’s a fuck you to a society that would put our little brothers and sisters’ backs against the wall. I wanted to throw a brick.” ~ Cliff Cardinal
