The Drawer Boy Will Play Off-Broadway's SoHo Playhouse; Casting Announced

News   The Drawer Boy Will Play Off-Broadway's SoHo Playhouse; Casting Announced The SoHo Playhouse and its artistic director Darren Lee Cole announced April 4 the addition of The Drawer Boy to the theatre’s Off-Broadway lineup.

Written by Michael Healey and directed by Alexander Dinelaris, performances will begin April 19 and continue through June 16.

The cast will comprise Alex Fast, Brad Fryman and William Laney.

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 Abington Theatre Arts Complex. The SoHo Playhouse engagement features that cast and creative team.

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."

The creative team will feature Rebecca Lord-Surratt (scenic design), David Murin (costume design), Amith Chandrashaker (lighting design) and Nick Moore (sound design/composer). Show times will be Tuesday-Sunday at 8 PM and Saturday and Sunday at 3 PM.

Tickets are available for $79 (premium) and $65 (reserved). During preview performances, all tickets are available for $35. To purchase tickets visit www.sohoplayhouse.com or call (866) 811-4111.
