Soho Playhouse Will Bring Back THE DRAWER BOY
Soho Playhouse announced that it will transfer Oberon Theatre Ensemble's production of THE DRAWER BOY by Michael Healey. THE DRAWER BOY will reopen at the Vandam Street theater on April 19th.
THE DRAWER BOY looks in on the lives of two aging bachelor farmers in 1972 rural Ontario. World War II veterans and lifelong friends, the farmers share a quiet and uneventful life based on stories and routine. Their lives are comically disrupted when a young, energetic actor from the big city shows up on their doorstep wanting to live and work with them as research for a play about farming. As the actor immerses himself, the farmers' darkest secrets become part of the actor's play and the lines between theatre and life, and memory and reality, become blurred. Heartbreak and levity mix in this extraordinary play about storytelling and how it transforms our lives.
