Paasteewitoon Kaapooskaysing Tageespichit (Dry Lips Oughta Move to Kapuskasing) tells another story of the mythical Wasaychigan Hill Indian Reserve, also the setting for Tomson Highway's award winning play The Rez Sisters. 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 one of Canada's most exciting and distinctive playwrights. His plays explore the contemporary Indian in a dominant white society, and the results are both exciting and challenging. Tomson Highway was made a member of the Order of Canada in 1994. Originally from Manitoba, he now resides northern Ontario when he is not travelling abroad.
