Abstract:

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 has turned more kind. Aggie Rose is a former actress - "Do you know what it's like to be a talented actress in a country where there is no theatre?" - and Sprugg is a failed poet - "I, too, had a grand aspiration...Mine was the world of literature." Together, they act out their fantasies, trying to bring "a little warmth, a little human kindness to each other's lives."
