Carmen’s Restaurant & County Seat Theater,  “The Boys Next Door”

‘The Boys Next Door’ presents a residence in a New England city, where four mentally handicapped men live under the supervision of the young social worker named Jack. Norman, who works in a donut 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 golf pro.

Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four, where ‘little things’ sometimes become momentous, 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.

Aging Mastery Program

Coming this Spring!

As children, we are taught how to be successful adults.  By contrast, no one teaches us how to age well.  As a result, most are unprepared for this new stage in life. The Aging Mastery Program focuses on key aspects of health, finances, relationships, personal growth, and community involvement.

The program’s philosophy is the belief that modest lifestyle changes can produce big results. Mastery comes from turning these lifestyle changes into habits that lead to improved health, stronger economic security, enhanced well-being, and increased societal participation.

When: TBD

Contact us to get on the waiting list!
