The Drawer Boy by Michael Healey
A young actor from the big city lives with two aging bachelor farmers to gather stories about rural life. The farmers’ lives are irrevocably altered when art attempts to imitate life and the line between truth and fiction is crossed. The play moves from toughness and hilarity to something devastating and tender. It is one of the few plays to create an authentic tradition in our (Canadian) culture.
