This Is Our Youth
August 8 - August 25, 2013
by Kenneth Lonergan
Directed by Lewis D. Wheeler
Set over the course of 48 hours, This is Our Youth examines the lives of three privileged teenagers in 1980’s Manhattan - when and where an abundance of worldly knowledge and money proves no substitute for familial affection. In meticulous, hilarious, and agonizing detail, Youth provides a snapshot of that moment between adolescence and adulthood when young people first go out into the world on their own – only to realize that the ideas and techniques that they developed as teenagers are far less effectual than they ever could have imagined. Jimi Stanton (the critically acclaimed star of 9 Circles), Elliot Norton Award-winner Alex Pollock, and Amanda Collins (9 Circles) are among the cast.
