The Boys Next Door

Update: Thanks to everyone who came out and share this special weekend with us! Just added: watch our promo video for The Boys Next Door now! The Hilliard Arts Council is proud to present the inaugural show of our 2016/2017 season, The Boys Next Door, which coincides with the grand opening of our new building, the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center. The Boys Next Door is a play by Tom Griffin, first produced in the 1988/89 season. The two act play, set in the Boston area, deals with four men with various mental disabilities who live in a group home. It takes place over roughly a two-month period and consists of brief vignettes about their lives. The play provides a humorous commentary on the men’s lives, taking a surprising turn as Barry’s father comes to visit and as Jack (their caretaker) accepts a new job. The play evolved from stories Griffin heard from a friend who was an administrator at group homes similar to the one in “Boys” (“some of the stories were heartbreaking, and some were very funny”) and from his own experiences.
