ABOUT THIS SHOW

“We're here to get your history and give it back to you.”

Ontario - 1972. Miles, a young theatre actor from the city, arrives at the rural home of Angus and Morgan, two aging bachelor farmers, intending to write a play based on their stories about the rural life experience. But Miles soon discovers that the history shared by these two men is based on half-truths and mis-rememberings, and that uncovering the truth could deal a fatal blow to the tenuous strands holding together the shared lives of these two men.

A compelling portrait of friendship, Michael Healey's play is also a striking examination of the transformational power of storytelling. Already a Canadian classic, The Drawer Boy invites us to explore the blurred line between reality and fiction, and re-frames our assumptions about the art that represents their synthesis.
