The Drawer Boy - May 2003

The Drawer Boy by Micheal Healey
Directed by Dave Eaton

It's 1972, and a self-absorbed young Toronto actor arrives on a small farm to do hands-on research for an upcoming role in a play about country life. He is sent to live with two middle-aged farmers and unwittingly stumbles upon the truth about their past and as a result, their lives are forever altered when art attempts to imitate life and the line between truth and fiction is crossed. What begins as an amusing portrayal of rural and urban culture-clash, slowly peels away layers of forgotten truths and lies, exposing hidden secrets of love and tragedy.

Blair Scott received the award for Best Supporting Actor at the Peace River Zone Theatre Festival.
