Winner of the Governor General's Award for Best Play and four Dora Maver Awards!
The staged reading features an actor, Miles, from Toronto who asks two farmers for a trade: work in exchange for room, board, and their stories. The two farmers, Morgan and Angus, live together and have been friends since before their Second World War tour. Steadfast Morgan runs the show, while Angus tends to the cooking and finances. Though Angus has a sharp head for numbers, it’s clear there’s something wrong in his memory and processing, and Morgan shoulders most of the burden of care. Although, all is not as it seems and through the process of learning about their lives, Miles realizes that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to Morgan and Angus.
The Drawer Boy is crafted with humour, heartbreak and a strong sense of community and family. It is a fundamental example of the power of storytelling in creating and interpreting reality.
