From the Director
The Drawer Boy is a humorous, heartwarming play about the pleasures of friendship, storytelling, and remembrance. But more than that, it's a rare and profound meditation on the search for the truth, and power/danger of theatre to provoke change, and re-living the past. The story begins on a summer's day in 1972 when Miles, an idealistic, ebullient young actor knocks on the door of an isolated farmhouse. He hopes to move in with local farmers for a few weeks, and then make up a play about country life. The farm belongs to Morgan and Angus, two middle-aged bachelor farmers. Morgan is the no-nonsense "farmer boy" who takes pride in working the land, while Angus is the artistic "drawer boy," with a talent for drawing and design. Morgan has taken care of his friend ever since Angus suffered a massive head injury during World War II. Looking for actors with truthfulness, simplicity, and honesty.
