The Boys Next Door drama production opens Feb. 22.

Union College Drama will perform the two-act play The Boys Next Door, opening Feb. 22, 2007.

Written by Tom Griffin, the play follows the ups and downs of four young men, each in his own way challenged by mental illness. Living in a neighborhood group home, the four interact with each other, with their somewhat overwhelmed social worker and with the "normal" world that surrounds them. As we witness the mishaps and triumphs of their everyday living—poignant, aggravating, joyous and often funny—we are able to see past each peculiar exterior to the human being within.

The play will be directed by Anthony Gilmore, a 2002 graduate of Union College who has directed several theatrical productions at Union including The Miracle Worker in 2004.

The Boys Next Door will be performed in Woods Auditorium on the campus of Union College, 3800 South 48th Street. Enter the campus from Bancroft Ave. Parking is free. Admission for the play is $8 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens. Performances times are as follows:
