Two Colour Theatre Company, The Tabard Theatre's resident company continues to establish their reputation as one of London's finest producing companies. With twelve productions to date they open their Autumn season with The Boys Next Door by Tom Griffin. The play will be directed by David Robson. The season continues after this with the premiere of I Dream Before I Take The Stand by American playwright Arlene Hutton and finishes with a double bill of plays by J.M.Barrie; The Twelve Pound Look and A Well Remembered Voice.

An off-Broadway success, Tom Griffin's focuses on the lives of four mentally handicapped men who live in a communal residence in an American city under the supervision of a sincere but ultimately despairing social worker.

"Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four, where "little things" sometimes become monumental (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 allocated on this earth."
