THE ENGLISHMAN’S BOY introduces young Canadian actor Michael Eisner as the “Englishman’s boy” and weaves two parallel narratives into one spellbinding story. CBC Television has adapted some of this country's most compelling and popular works of Canadian literature and theatre, “ said Kirstine Layfield, CBC-TV's executive director of network programming. “ Many of our most watched dramas have been rooted in Canadian literature. THE ENGLISHMAN’S BOY continues that tradition with Guy Vanderhaeghe adapting his own multi-award winning novel for television.”
