[November 08, 2008]  A heartwarming drama of four souls trying to find meaning in life despite insurmountable odds will be told when "The Boys Next Door" opens at Lincoln College on Thursday.

This funny, yet touching play focuses on the lives of four young, mentally challenged men who live in a communal residence under the supervision of a sincere but increasingly despairing social worker. The drama is mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four, where little things can become monumental and are often very funny. We witness moments of great emotion and compassion and learn that all of us share the desire for love, laughter, and some meaning and purpose in our lives.

HardwareIn the Lincoln College production, Tinesheia Howard of Chicago plays Jackie; Nate King of Lincoln plays Norman; C.J. Garman of Cahokia plays Lucien P. Smith; Cameron Curtis of Verona, Wis., plays Arnold; Joshua Dobkins of Hoopeston plays Barry; Cassandra Ellwing of Mundelein plays Sheila; Mikel Frost of Lincoln plays Mr. Klemper; Hilary Schneider of Antioch plays Mrs. Fremus; Kassy Lane of Kankakee plays Mrs. Warren; Kari Denwiddie of Skokie plays Clara; Euzhan Sims of Naperville plays Mrs. Hedges; Leatrice McKay of Chicago plays Mrs. Corbin; and Diamond Bridges of Chicago plays Sen. Clark.

Lincoln College instructor Martin Holden will direct the play.

Showtime at the Johnston Center is at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 13-15, with a matinee performance at 2 p.m. Nov. 16. Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $5 for children and senior citizens. For tickets, call 217-732-3155, ext. 280, and leave your request.
