TWO COUSINS, ONE HOT NEWS STORY, AND SO MANY WRONG TURNS!

STARRING: 
Lorne Cardinal from Corner Gas
Craig Lauzon from Royal Canadian Air Farce

It has to be a pretty bad week when a car-breakdown in a remote forest means things are finally looking up! Journalist cousins Isaac and Jacob have been estranged since their youth on the reservation. Now brought together by outrageous circumstances they are set to uncover the story of their careers -- if they don't kill each other first!  Starring acclaimed and gifted comedic actors Lorne Cardinal (Corner Gas) and Craig Lauzon (Royal Canadian Air Farce).

A Persephone Theatre / Theatre Network Co-Production

"Williams's script is very funny, and under the direction of Bradley Moss and DelSurjik, Lauzon and Cardinal turn in great comic performances... impossible not to laugh at." "Thunderstick makes for a fun ride." -- CBC Radio, Winnipeg

"Thunderstick is a gas.  Williams has a rare gift for brutal honesty, the kind of stuff you have to laugh at or you'd cry."
     - The (Saskatoon) Star Phoenix

"Kenneth T. Williams's Thunderstick is a real crowd pleaser... Williams seems to have a real hit on his hands. The audience laughed heartily from beginning to end." - Edmonton Sun

"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
