Show Tackles Developmental Disabilities

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Timothy Bond wants to be respectful to everyone in Syracuse Stage's production of "The Boys Next Door." Tom Griffin's comedy/drama tells the story of four men — Arnold, Norman, Lucien and Barry — with developmental disabilities or mental illness who live together in a group home.
"We're excited to celebrate these people who are underrepresented onstage," says Bond, who is directing the play and is Stage’s producing artistic director. "It's been a moving process due in part to an incredible cast and a tender, touching script."
