An Off-Broadway success, this very funny yet very touching play focuses on the lives of four retarded men who live in a communal residence under the watchful eye of a sincere, but increasingly despairing, social worker. Filled with humor, the play is also marked by the compassion and understanding with which it peers into the half-lit world of its handicapped protagonists.
“… one of the most unusual…and one of the most rewarding plays in town.” —BackStage. “Griffin’s play hits squarely on the truth of life with its constant interplays and shadings of triumphs and tears.” —NY Daily News. “… moves the audience to an awareness of how many things in everyday life we take for granted…” —NY Times.
