George Reed is a Saskatchewan legend - elite athlete, advocate, and humanitarian. He made Regina home and made the province proud; and this year his life and work are ingeniously crafted into a new play by Munish Sharma.
The production takes us on the incredible journey highlighting George’s groundbreaking career, his move to the prairies, and how he won over the community. Footage and game highlights from his record-breaking career with the Saskatchewan Roughriders give audiences a view from the 55-yard line. #34 was commissioned by the Globe Theatre to coincide with the 2022 Grey Cup in Regina and to honour the man who put the city on the map. George Reed’s story is one of resilience and determination, and this production offers Canada a theatrical glimpse into a unique side of prairie life.
George Reed was an exceptional running back whose contribution to Canadian football was a game changer. He was the leading rusher during the 1965 to 1969 seasons and as well the 1974 season. CFL Hall of Fame
