George Reed is a Saskatchewan legend - elite athlete, advocate, and humanitarian. The show 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.
The City of Regina is a football town, the people are passionate about their team and “bleed green.” This production will coincide with the CFL’s Grey Cup in Regina, which is a spectacle, and brings people from across the country to the host city. This will be a unique opportunity to blend theatre, sports, and civic pride in one fabulous production.
