They’re funny, frenetic and fabulous and there’s never a dull moment when you live beside “The Boys Next Door”.

This funny yet very touching play focuses on the daily lives of four men with various mental challenges, who live in a house under the watchful eye of Jack, a sincere, but increasingly despairing social worker. Their antics in trying to carve out lives for themselves will have you roaring with laughter, whilst at times evoking moments of compassion.

Ably directed by Barry Spring, the 5 main characters are brilliantly played by Robert Gordon as Arnold, “basically a nervous person” ; Phil Adams as Lucien, “Spiderman’s best friend” ; Bruce Weston as Norman, “the donut smuggler”; Andrew Allen as Barry, the young “golf pro” and Adi Staite as Jack, their lovable minder.

Rounding out this fabulous cast are Sheila Summers and Kevin Murray , who each play three roles; Kristina Wiltsee as Norman’s “girlfriend”, and Norman Fairley as Barry’s brutal and abusive one-armed father.

Join their birthday party, come on their midnight mouse hunt, meet their neighbours and girlfriends, discover the magic of the keys, learn the alphabet, wait for the train to Russia and, most of all, have a completely wonderful night out.

A heart-warming and rewarding play definitely worth seeing!
