Photo Flash: Inside Opening Night of THE DRAWER BOY

The SoHo Playhouse and Darren Lee Cole, Artistic Director of the SoHo Playhouse present The Drawer Boy, written by Michael Healey, and directed by Alexander Dinelaris. The show opened last night, April 24, at the SoHo Playhouse and runs through June 16. Check out photos from opening night below!

Winner of the Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play, a Chalmers Award, and a Governor General's Award, The Drawer Boy made its New York City premiere in March 2013 in a workshop presented by The Oberon Theatre Ensemble at the June Havoc Theatre in The Abington Theatre Arts Complex. Called "a beautifully written piece, humorous and heart-wrenching" by The New York Times, The Drawer Boy will play the SoHo Playhouse with the original New York Premiere cast and creative team.

Set in 1972 on a farm near Clinton, Ontario, The Drawer Boy replays the adventures of Miles, a young actor from a Toronto theatre group, who visits the rural Ontario home of two elderly bachelor farmers, Morgan and Angus, to "research" farm life for a new play. Morgan is the caretaker of Angus, who suffers from impaired mental capacities due to an injury suffered during World War II. When Miles enters the lives of The Farmers, he brings the story of Angus' injuries to the surface in this classic outsider-intrudes-on-a-closed-world play.

The Drawer Boy plays at the SoHo Playhouse (15 Vandam Street, NYC) Tuesdays through Sundays at 8:00 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 3:00 p.m., starting April 19, 2013 until June 16, 2013. The running time is approximately 2 hours with a ten minute intermission. Tickets are available for $79 (Premium) and $65 (Reserved). During preview performances, all tickets are available for $35.
