The Boys Next Door

by Tom Griffin

 

Tuesday, February 13
6 pm


 

Directed by Karrie Jones

The place is a communal residence in a New England city, where four mentally handicapped men live under the supervision of an earnest, but increasingly “burned out” young social worker named Jack. Norman, who works in a doughnut shop and is unable to resist the lure of the sweet pastries, takes great pride in the huge bundle of keys that dangles from his waist; Lucien P. Smith has the mind of a five-year-old but imagines that he is able to read and comprehend the weighty books he lugs about; Arnold, the ringleader of the group, is a hyperactive, compulsive chatterer, who suffers from deep-seated insecurities and a persecution complex; while Barry, a brilliant schizophrenic who is devastated by the unfeeling rejection of his brutal father, fantasizes that he is a golf pro. Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four, where “little things” sometimes become momentous (and often very funny), are moments of great poignancy when, with touching effectiveness, we are reminded that the handicapped, like the rest of us, want only to love and laugh and find some meaning and purpose in the brief time that they, like their more fortunate brothers, are allotted on this earth.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) interviewed Evelyn Doss, a high school junior from Blue Ridge, Georgia, about her experience in the U.S. Senate Page Program on Facebook Live.

“Congratulations to Evelyn and her family on her acceptance into the Senate Page Program,” said Senator Perdue. “As an impressive young leader in her school and community, Evelyn has certainly earned this high honor, and I look forward to hearing about her continued success in the future.”

 

Evelyn is the first page Senator Perdue has appointed to the program. She is a student at Fannin County High School and participates in student government, mock trial, and drama club. Evelyn is also a member of the National Honor Society and plays the flute in her school’s band.
