a theatrical meta-masterpiece
theatre The Drawer Boy Feb. 28 to March 25, Theatre Passe Muraille
Theatre Passe Muraille celebrates its 50th anniversary with a welcome revival of Michael Healey’s selfreferential hit, The Drawer Boy. The funny, touching play follows a young city actor who moves in with a pair of elderly farmers to conduct research for Passe Muraille’s legendary 1970s creation The Farm Show. In the course of his interviews, he inadvertently stirs up memories and dark secrets from their past. This new production is directed by Nina Lee Aquino of Factory Theatre, which has recently reinterpreted other Canadian classics like Salt-Water Moon and Banana Boys.
