Kenneth T. Williams is a Cree playwright from the George Gordon First Nation in Saskatchewan and the first person of the Indigenous persuasion to earn an MFA in playwriting from the University of Alberta. He’s never chased a buffalo over a cliff but he did once shoot a gopher between the eyes from 200 yards away with a .22 when he was 14. After 15 years as a journalist, he got tired of reporting lies and decided to finally put his theatre degree to use. His plays Thunderstick, Bannock Republic, Gordon Winter, Three Little Birds and Cafe Daughter have all been professionally produced across Canada. He is always working on new stuff, ask him about it, he’ll tell you. He now calls Saskatoon his home and can be caught teaching the art of writing plays at the University of Saskatchewan, where he is also the playwright in residence for the Drama Department. He also has a hamster. He’ll show you photos if you insist on asking about her.
