The Boys Next Door

Westwego Performing Arts Theatre    3/16/2007 - 4/1/2007 (schedule)

Category:  Comedy · Drama

"The Boys Next Door" is a play about four mentally handicapped men who live in a home together in New England. Their social worker, Jack, is becoming burned out with his job, and his life. Lucien P. Smith and Norman Bulansky are mentally retarded. Barry
Klemper is a brilliant schizophrenic who fantasizes that he is a golf pro, and Arnold Wiggins, the ringleader, is a hyperactive, compulsive chatterer, who suffers from deep seated insecurities and a persecution complex.
This play shows that sometimes being a little different means being a lot more wonderful.
