Thirty years ago, Ernie (Oliver Becker) walked out on his family, leaving his son George (Skye Brandon) to cope without a dad.
But after a long estrangement, Ernie has suffered a stroke and is now confined to a wheelchair. Contacted to provide assistance, George is faced with the challenge of trying to care for a man he doesn’t really know.
Directed by Marti Maraden, The Secret Mask opens at the Globe Theatre tonight and runs until March 20. You can find more information, along with tickets, on the Globe website.
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.
