WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Coming to New York from Chicago's famed Steppenwolf, This Is Our Youth follows forty-eight hours in the lives of three very lost young souls: Warren, a dejected nineteen year old who has just stolen $15,000 from his abusive, tycoon father; Dennis, his charismatic drug-dealing friend who helps Warren put the stolen money to good use; and, Jessica, the anxiously insightful young woman who Warren yearns for. Funny, painful and compassionate, This Is Our Youth is a living snapshot of the moment when many young people go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers—far more sophisticated than their parents realize, and far less effectual than they themselves can possibly imagine.
A limited number of rush tickets, for theatregoers aged 30 and under, will be available the day of the performance at the box office of the Cort Theatre. The $35.00 rush tickets will be limited to 2 per person with valid photo ID, available during box office hours.
