April 11-13, 2014: The Broadway Players Present "Plaza Suite"
Directed by: Fred Hadley
Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza. A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before and was yesterday the anniversary, or is it today? This wry tale of marriage in tatters is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. Over the years she has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where guests await her or as Mother yells, “I want you to come out of that bathroom and get married!”

September 26-28, 2014: The Broadway Players Present " The Drawer Boy"
A comedy/drama by Michael Healey
Directed by: Jessie Dyer
The Drawer Boy replays the adventures of a young actor from a theatre group who visits the rural home of two elderly bachelor farmers to “research” farm life for a new play. The two farmers, Morgan and Angus, have achieved a precarious balance in their lives together. Morgan, a tough-minded, stubborn man, cares for Angus, who has had brain damage and lost his memory during the bombing of London in the Second World War. Angus is initially identified as “the drawer boy” because he once designed buildings, and has the talents of an architect. Morgan calms and reassures Angus by retelling their story – of the two tall women whom they loved, and who came to live with them on the farm.
The young actor, Miles, learns that this story is fiction and that the truth is much sadder. It would, in fact, destroy their friendship. In the process of telling their story as a play, however, he reawakens Angus’s memory. Art becomes life. Miles is in effect the “drawer boy,” delineating and creating an alternative reality. As he tells Morgan, “We’re here to get your history and give it back to you.” The Drawer Boy is fundamentally about the power of storytelling in creating and interpreting reality, and how it can transform lives. This poignant, and often hilarious play, is story-telling at its best!!!!!
