Actors’ Theatre’s production of The Drawer Boy features an urban and rural culture clash when a young actor decides to live with two elderly farmers to do research for a script.

The farmers, Morgan and Angus, are reluctant to let the self-absorbed city boy, Miles Potter, move in. But as Miles spends more and more time with the farmers, he uncovers secrets they have managed to keep hidden from each other for three decades.

“The first time I read the play, I was captured by the characters and the sweet simplicity of their lives that masks a deep and dramatic secret,” Director Fred Sebulske said. “These are three wonderful character studies, full of humor and mystery, drama and humanity.”
