The Drawer Boy

Brilliantly written by Michael Healey, The Drawer Boy which opened at the Port Stanley Festival Theatre on August 6, 2015 is an intense emotional drama. Little bits of comic relief lighten the mood to prevent it from becoming maudlin.

Sponsored by Studio Style of Port Stanley, The Drawer Boy is directed by PSFT Artistic Director Simon Joynes with Set Design by Josh Quinlan , Lighting Design by Sruthi Suresan, and Costume Design by Alex Amini.

Playing "Miles" as a one-note character, Nathan Carroll is totally believable as an novice young actor doing research for a collaborative "Farm Show". Boarding with two bachelor farmers to get authentic material for his play, he quickly realizes there is something wrong with one of these bachelors, "Angus" as played by Scott Maudsley.

Jeff Culbert as "Morgan" has great sport with "Miles" by greatly misleading the lad about farm life; but as "Miles" discovers when hearing "Morgan" telling a story to "Angus" about what happened to the two of them, there are hidden mysteries involved in the bond of friendship between these two men.

With an inquisitiveness triggered by "Miles" probing, Scott Maudsley comes into his own as "Angus" as the play progresses, delivering a powerful and highly emotional performance of a brain damaged man seeking truthful answers to his questions - answers which do not fit the story he has believed for so many years.

Winner of the Governor General's Award Winning Play in its debut year, The Drawer Boy is the fourth offering of the Port Stanley Festival Theatre for the 2015 summer season. Running from August 5th, this classic Canadian masterpiece enjoys a three week run with a closing night August 22nd.
