Join Filament Theatre Ensemble and The Den Theatre Ensemble for The Drawer Boy, the award winning play by Michael Healey inspired by the Theatre Passe Muraille’s landmark production of The Farm Show. The Drawer Boy examines the relationship between two WWII veterans whose lives are turned upside down when a young actor visits their farm to gather research for a play. What starts off quite innocently unfolds into a powerful journey as the two older men rebuild the story of their lives, the truth of which had long been left unspoken.
Praise for The Drawer Boy:
“Five Stars!” – Around the Town Chicago
“A moving, subtle drama…flawlessly performed.” -Chicago Critic
“Heartfelt…Like looking through the scrapbook of someone you don’t know.” -David Zak
