The Boys Next Door was written in the early 1980s by Tom Griffin. This play is a two act comedy drama about four intellectually disabled men who live together in small group home apartment in Boston. It takes place over roughly a two-month period and consists of brief vignettes about their lives. The play provides a humorous commentary on the men’s lives, taking a surprising turn as Barry’s father comes to visit and as Jack (their caretaker) accepts a new job.
Both Gift of the Magi and Best Christmas Pageant Ever will be performing. One will be before intermission, the other after.
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is a hilarious Christmas classic. A couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant are faced with casting the Herdman kids–probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won’t believe the mayhem and the fun when the Herdmen collide with the Christmas story head on! This delightful comedy features plenty of great roles for children and adults, a few favorite Christmas Carols, and a lot of laughs
In The Gift of the Magi James and his wife, Della, are a couple living in a modest apartment. They have only two possessions, Jim’s shiny gold watch, which had belonged to his father and grandfather, and Della’s hair. Della later admits to Jim that she sold her hair to buy him his present. Jim gives Della her present – expensive hair pins, that are now useless Della then shows Jim the chain she bought for him, to which Jim says he sold his watch to get the money to buy her combs. Although Jim and Della are now left with gifts that neither one can use, they realize how far they are willing to go to show their love for each other
Jon and Leslie are out-of-work musicians who room together in NYC. To save money, Jon has filled their tax returns listing the pair as a married couple. The day of reckoning comes when the IRS informs the “couple” they’re going to be investigated. Leslie is forced masquerade as a housewife-with the aid of Jon’s fiancée, Kate. Complicating matters further-Leslie and Kate are having an affair behind Jon’s back, Jon’s mother drops in unexpectedly, and Leslie’s ex-girlfriend shows up demanding to know why Leslie won’t see her anymore.
Nunsense is a hilarious spoof about the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser. Sadly, the rest of the sisterhood died from botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia. Thus, the remaining nuns: ballet-loving Sister Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Regina, and mistress of the novices Sister Mary Hubert – stage a talent show in order to raise the money to bury their dearly departed.
