Thunderstick

“What would our ancestors think of us? Hiding in a car because of some wolves."

Alternating between bouts of laughter that had my sides hurting and powerful moments that had tears rolling down my face, Thunderstick surprised me at every turn.

The Gateway

Co-production with Persephone Theatre

Starring Lorne Cardinal from the hit TV show Corner Gas, and Royal Canadian Air Farce regular Craig Lauzon as mismatched cousins on the trail of scandalous political intrigue. The cousins – one a globetrotting photojournalist, the other an unsuccessful reporter with a penchant for drinking – have been estranged since their youth on the reservation and are now brought together by unforeseen circumstances. The raunchy comedy begins as one cousin throws up on the Prime Minister, and gets only more frenzied as they’re launched into jail, heartbreak and a road trip into the Ontario backwoods – all while chasing the story of their careers.

See the play a second time – Cardinal and Lauzon will swap roles every night!
