Lorne Cardinal to play Norval Morrisseau and Michel Tremblay's 'Narrator'

Lorne Cardinal, best known for his six seasons as Sergeant Davis Quinton in the hit TV series Corner Gas, takes on a much different role here, as the great painter Norval Morrisseau in Western Edge Theatre’s season-opener, Copper Thunderbird.

First presented at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, this play by acclaimed playwright Marie Clements presents Morrisseau – who spent his last years in Nanaimo – simultaneously as a boy, young man, and old man.

Cardinal will also share the stage with Margo Kane in For the Pleasure of Seeing Her Again, which opens at Sagebrush Theatre on January 26, 2012.
