The Drawer Boy Broadway at Soho Playhouse

The Drawer Boy Broadway:

The Drawer Boy plays at Soho Playhouse
15 Vandam Street


This award winning play looks in on the lives of two 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 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.

This play is a New York Times Critic Pick. It is a jewel of a play and is directed by playwright Alexander Dinelaris. He is the 2013 AASSSG Outstanding Achievement Award Recipient for his play, "Red Dog Howls." "Red Dog Howls" is about a grandson's discovery of his family's secrets revealed by his grandmother, an Armenian Genocide survivor. "The Drawer Boy" will run through June 16, 2013.

The Drawer Boy Will Play Off-Broadway's SoHo Playhouse; Casting Announced - Playbill.com
