The Arts Report – October 20th 2010


On Wednesday’s Art Report…
If you’re a big fan of Corner Gas, then tune it today for a chat with Lorne Cardinal who is in town performing the play, Thunderstick. It opens with an ode to a painful hangover and follows up with more comedic hilarity as two clashing journalists chase after a political conspiracy. Thunderstick is playing at the Firehall Arts Centre from now until October 31st.
