Alex Fast, Brad Fryman and William Laney are bringing a big dose of the Canadian countryside to New York City in The Drawer Boy, beginning performances April 19 at off-Broadway’s Soho Playhouse. Directed by Alexander Dinelaris and written by Michael Healey, The Drawer Boy will play a limited engagement through June 16. Opening night is set for April 24.
Set in 1972, The Drawer Boy tells the story of Miles, a young actor who visits Morgan and Angus, two elderly farmers who also happen to be World War II veterans, at their Ontario farm to research their lives for a new play. The Drawer Boy originally premiered in Toronto at Theatre Passe Muraille in 1999. Fast, Fryman and Laney previously starred in the Abingdon Theater Arts Complex production.
The production features set design by Rebecca Lord-Surratt, costume design by David Murin, lighting design by Amith Chandrashaker and sound design by Nick Moore.
