Regina Fringe Festival Review: When Harry Met Harry

SHOW: When Harry Met Harry
VENUE: Artesian on 13th (Angus Street and 13th Avenue)
SCHEDULE: 5 July 9 p.m., 6 July 5 p.m.

If you don’t know a Harry in your workplace — anal-retentive, domineering, as sociable as a grumpy skunk — be very afraid. You’re probably Harry. Allan Girod’s one man play examines the lost life of aq mid-level company man at his emotional breaking point — one of those company life training seminars hosted by a Anthony Robbins-wanna-be takes a while to get going, but eventually climaxes in a scene that can best be described as a comedy of horror. If you ever had a rough day at the office, this one-man play won’t be an anecdote but a reminder that you’re not alone.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
