The Drawer Boy

 

 

City Boy offers to do farm work for free, in Studio Theatre’s production of Micheal Healey’s THE DRAWER BOY

Directed by: Roberta Peets

The play features: Grey Masson, Alfred von Mirbach and Conner Williamson

Free farm help is something no self respecting farmer can ever pass up. In the 1970’s a group of actors and directors from Theatre Passe Muraille in Toronto headed out into the farming communities of Southern Ontario, interviewing local farmers and their families to create a landmark Canadian theatrical event The Farm Show.

This type of theatre was a cooperative-actor driven form of play writing known as “collective-creation”. At first the results didn’t seem like a play, since there were no lights, no costumes, no set-in fact often the venue was a barn with hay bales for seats. Actors would tell the stories they had heard, and would in effect draw a picture of what farming was really like. Often the actors would work on the farms to get first hand experience. At other times they would sit in parlours with the families, drawing out stories as they looked at wedding albums and family scrapbooks and drank countless cups of tea.

In 1999 actor and playwright Micheal Healey reconnected with many of these families, and he in turn was inspired to write the play THE DRAWER BOY. In the play Angus and Morgan, played by Alfred Von Mirbach and Grey Masson, live together on an Ontario farm and have long ago settled into a routine that works well for both of them. Angus handles the accounts, bakes bread, and looks at the stars on clear nights. Morgan keeps the cows milked, the barns cleaned, and the tractor running, and keeps an eye on Angus. They have been friends since before the war. Into their uneventful life steps Miles Potter, , a young actor from the big city, played by Connor Williamson. Miles needs to learn about farming for a theatre project he is involved in, and he offers to work for the two men as a means of gaining insight into their lifestyle. Free farm labor is not something that Morgan is going to turn down, so the deal is struck.

After a lot of gentle comedy about the urban-rural divide, Miles overhears Morgan telling Angus a story from their own broken past. When Miles incorporates the story into his show, and invites Morgan and Angus to the rehearsal, what is shown there disrupts the farmers lives and laughs give way to greater drama. Veteran stage director Roberta Peets manages to pull out both the heart and the humor in this beautiful play about farm life in southern Ontario. Come on down to the theatre, sit a spell, and soak up a wonderful story.

The Drawer Boy premieres at the Studio Theatre in beautiful heritage Perth on Thursday April 5 for seven shows, April 5, 6, 7, 13 and 14 at 7:30 pm and April 8 and 15 at 2 pm.

The Taming

 

 

THE TAMING
a comedy by
Lauren Gunderson

April 20, 21, 26, 27, 28 at 8:00 p.m.
April 22 and 29 at 2:00 p.m.

Shakespeare
meets Miss America
meets American politics.

NOTE: very strong language

This show was the most produced play in the U.S. in 2016 AND 2017, but we believe that this is the Canadian premiere!

It’s a searing, outrageous slash through 250 years of American politics, all played out in a hotel room between a “lefty” political hacktivist, a Republican political flunky and Miss Georgia.
Oh, and George Washington, James Madison and Charles Pinkney — and their wives.

It’s as up-to-date as a Trump tweet and twice as funny.

“A funny, fundamentally sound and sane look at the insanity of American politics. I cannot recall having such a good time with a political diatribe in my long and involved life.” The Berkshire Edge blog

“Plenty of big laughs, along with some pained chuckles when she hits too close to the stuff we see on TV every day.” TheatreJones blog

“Gunderson shows that decisions—whether picking a beauty queen or defining a Bill of Rights—are born of messy conflict, collaboration, and compromise.” TheatreStorm blog

(Newspapers just don’t review plays anymore, apparently.)

 

Date :

April 20-29, 2018

Call me By Your Name

 

Nominated for 4 Oscars, including best pictures of the year, it’s the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and summer guest at his parents’ cliff-side mansion on the Italian Riviera.

The pleasures of art, music, food, natural beauty and sexual awakening are evoked and celebrated in “Call Me by Your Name,” an almost sinfully enjoyable movie that both observes and obeys the languid rhythms of a torrid Italian summer.

Elena Bucci, Vanda Capriolo, Amira Casar, Timothée Chalamet, Victoire Du Bois, Esther Garrel, Armie Hammer.
Sexuality, nudity and some coarse language. Ages 16+
Movies are shown on a nice big 9′ x 16′ screen, with great sound, comfy seats and, of course, popcorn.
