The play 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.  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 which they, like their more fortunate brothers, are allotted on this earth.  The Boys Next Door moves the audience to an awareness of how many things in everyday life we take for granted.
