Some Theatre Company will present “The Boys Next Door,” by Tom Griffin and directed by Directed by Elaine Bard, on Aug 25-26 and Sept. 1-2 at the Keith Anderson Community House, 19 Bennoch Rd, Orono.

Written with extraordinary humor and compassion, “The Boys Next Door” is a delightful and touching picture of life, friendship and challenges. The four “boys” always “tell it like it is” – they don’t need anyone to tell them how or when to express their feelings. In this time of cynicism, there is an honesty and sincerity about these men that will stay with you long after the play ends.

Barry thinks he’s a golf pro. Norman can’t stop eating doughnuts. Arnold has decided he’s going to move to Russia and Lucien is concerned that they don’t have any trees. Filled with hilarity, the play is also marked by a deep care and understanding as it touchingly communicates that these four men are just like everybody else who just wants to love and be loved while finding some meaning and purpose in their lives.

Show times will be as follows: Friday, Aug 25 – 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Aug. 26 – 2 and 7;30 p.m.; Sept. 1 – 7:30 p.m.; and Sept. 2 – 2 and 7:30 p.m.
