Michael Healey's award-winning play, The Drawer Boy, tells a similar story.
One day a young actor from Toronto lands on the doorstep of Morgan's farmhouse.
"I'm from Toronto", Miles says, and Morgan answers, "That's too bad."
Miles rebounds and explains that he's come to "learn about farming while I write a play about it", but the wary Morgan is still unimpressed, whereas the second farmer the slower and more domestic Angus openly shows interest in Miles' ambitious project.
All the same, Miles ends up working on the farm, where he eventually discovers a major and illuminating truth about these two brotherly bachelor farmers.
It turns out that during their service in World War I, Angus and Morgan met two sisters, Sally and Frances. They were a mirror image of the two men; they were inseparable and deeply connected to each other. And Angus married Sally. But that was then.
