"Tells another story of the mythical Wasaychigan Hill Indian Reserve, also the setting for Tomson Highway's award winning play The Rez Sisters. Where in The Rez Sisters the focus was on seven "Wasy" women and the game of bingo, Dry Lips Oughta Move to Kapuskasing features seven "Wasy" men and the game of hockey. It is a fast-paced story of tragedy, comedy, and hope. Tomson Highway is a Canadian playwright from the Brochet Indian Reserve in northern Manitoba. He now lives in Toronto. His plays explore the contemporary Indian in a dominant white society, and the results are both exciting and challenging"--Provided by publisher.
