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.
