Boiler Room Suite

By Rex Deverell

Boiler Room Suite is Rex Deverell’s play about two Skid Row winos who have climbed into the boiler room of an abandoned hotel on the Prairies to seek refuge from winter and from the world, until it turns kinder. Aggie Rose is a former actress and Sprugg is a failed poet. Together they act out their fantasies, trying to bring “a little warmth, a little human kindness to each other’s lives.”

Boiler Room Suite is the winner of the 1977 Canadian Authors Association Award for Drama.
