Weekend watch: ‘Blessed Assurance’


As an assistant professor of acting, voice and movement at North Dakota state University, Hardy Koenig is the man more often the man behind the stage.

He takes center stage Saturday night in the one-man show, “Blessed Assurance” at the Stage at Island Park, 333 4th St. S., Fargo. The on-act performance looks at a well-off aging white man who reflects back on his formative years scamming poor black families in the 1940s and ’50s by selling them “funeral insurance.”

Alone now, he is haunted by his conscience and the voices of his past. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults. (701) 235-6778.
