Touring Vancouver Island this summer for the first time in decades, Boiler Room Suite by Rex Deverell

Scrumpy Theatre from Victoria, BC, presents Boiler Room Suite by Rex Deverell in the summer of 2015, starring Naomi Simpson as Aggie, Mark Carins as Sprugg, and Julian Cervello as Pete.

About the play: 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 won the 1977 Canadian Authors Association Award for Drama.
