About This Show

Paper Mill Playhouse presents The Drawer Boy, by Michael Healey, starring John Mahoney. Anna D. Shapiro directs.

Tony® Award-winning actor John Mahoney, most recently known for his role on TV’s “Frasier,” stars in this poignant play that Time Magazine hails as “a new classic” and one of the TEN BEST of 2001. Full of rich and savvy humor, this heartwarming story is about the simple pleasures of friendship, storytelling, and remembrance. A young, aspiring actor lands at the doorstep of two farmers – boyhood friends and WWII veterans. What begins as an amusing portrayal of rural and urban culture-clash slowly peels away layers of forgotten love and tragedy. Variety raves “Heartfelt honesty and the kind of storytelling good theatre is all about.”
