Cliff Cardinal has made no impact on the scene, whatsoever. You've probably never heard of him and he pretty much sucks. (< written by the man himself)
Cliff Cardinal’s play Stitch debuted in SummerWorks Performance Festival 2011, winning both The Spotlight Award for Performance, as well as Theatre Passe Muraille’s Emerging Artist Award for the script’s notable artistic impression.
His second play Huff, about the wondrous lives of Wind and his brothers who are caught in a torrent of solvent abuse and struggling to cope with the death of their mother, won the Buddies in Bad Times Vanguard Award for Risk and Innovation at SummerWorks 2012. Huff recently completed a National Tour including presentations at The Push International Performing Arts Festival, The Magnetic North Theatre Festival and the Pivot Theatre Festival, and closed the studio season at the National Arts Centre in May of this year.
Another play of Cliff’s, Maria Gets A New Life, debuted at SummerWorks 2013, garnering rave reviews
Cardinal graduated from The National Theatre School of Canada's Playwriting Program in 2015.
Nelly Furtado is a big fan.
