The Drawer Boy first premiered at Passe Muraille in 1999. The play draws on Canadian theatre history, inspired by the making of The Farm Show in 1972, where a group of Toronto actors, led by Paul Thompson,
interviewed and researched farmers in the Huron County region in order to make a play about farming.
The play went on to be one of the most produced plays in Canada and the U.S.
The story begins when Miles, an actor from Toronto, interrupts the lives of Angus and Morgan, two bachelor farmers. Angus suffers from memory loss after a war induced head injury, and aside from only knowing
right now, he and Morgan live in relative peace while running their small dairy farm. Miless arrival disrupts their daily lives, challenging the notions of truth and friendship.
Last year, documentary film maker Arturo Perez Torres and theatre artist Aviva Armour-Ostroff united their respective career expertise to make the play into a film.
Shot on location in Blyth, Ontario, the film stars Canadas finest of stage actors, and includes a cameo from legendary director and theatre pioneer Paul Thompson himself.
The film is just launching its film festival tour, having won Best Premiere at the Heartland Film Festival in Indiana and Critics Choice at Morelia Film Festival in Mexico.
