WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Set in 1972, The Drawer Boy is the story of two Canadian farmers, Angus and Morgan, who are boyhood friends and World War II veterans. After suffering brain damage during the war, Angus can communicate, but his short-term memory loss has left Morgan effectively in charge of his memories for the past 30 years. Their workaday lives are comically disrupted when Miles, a young actor researching farm life for a play he is co-writing with his small theater company, shows up at their door. Miles overhears Morgan retell Angus the story of their lives and, without asking their permission, writes down the tale and inserts it into the play. When the two farmers see the story performed, it has a profound effect on Angus' memory, his relationship with Morgan, and on Miles' idea of how theater can transform lives.
