The Boys Next Door

The Boys Next Door by Tom Griffin tackles the issue of mental retardation. “This play is a blend of light, sweet, sentimental humor with sad and painful moments,” says the show’s director, Ed Muth. In the play, roommates Arnold, Barry, Lucien and Norman, all mentally handicapped, confront personal issues that vary from romance to illiteracy. Their burnt-out social worker Jack says, “The problem is that they never change.” 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Theatre One, 3517 Austin. For information, call 713-718-6570 or visit $5 to $8.
