Read: Huff, the short story, written by Cardinal


"I was really interested in a minimalist style of fiction: telling the story through the experience of the body... The power one person relating their experience through the experience of the body has a very potent effect for an audience in the theatre."

Cliff Cardinal in Intermission Magazine

"Cardinal (is) equally convincing as an emotionally stunted patriarch, an unsympathetic school teacher, a talk show host and an aggressive skunk, snapping in and out of character at the drop of a hat. His range and the energy he brings to each performance is stunning."
