Winner of the Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play, a Chalmers Award and a Governor General's Award, The Drawer Boy made its New York City premiere in March in a workshop presented by The Oberon Theatre Ensemble at the June Havoc Theatre in The Abingdon Theatre Arts Complex. The SoHo Playhouse engagement features that cast and creative team. The cast of The Drawer Boy is comprised of Alex Fast, Brad Fryman and William Laney. Set in 1972 on a farm near Clinton, Ontario, The Drawer Boy, according to press notes, "replays the adventures of Miles, a young actor from a Toronto theatre group, who visits the rural Ontario home of two elderly bachelor farmers, Morgan and Angus, to "research" farm life for a new play. Morgan is the caretaker of Angus, who suffers from impaired mental capacities due to an injury suffered during World War II. When Miles enters the lives of the farmers, he brings the story of Angus’ injuries to the surface in this classic outsider-intrudes-on-a-closed-world play." Here's a look at the production:
