Editorial Review

"The Drawer Boy is a beautifully written play. It moves from toughness and hilarity to something devastating and tender. By taking off from an earlier Passe Muraille Drama, The Farm Show, and seeing that theatrical event from a new angle, it is one of the few plays to create an authentic tradition in our culture." — Michael Ondaatje, author of The English Patient
