About this show

Kenneth Lonergan's, This is Our Youth, tells the story of three well-to-do New York teens on the precipice of adulthood in 1982 at the dawn of the Reagan era. Well educated, articulate, and generally intoxicated; Dennis, Warren, and Jessica find themselves awkwardly struggling somewhere between childhood and adulthood. Funny, painful and compassionate, This is Our Youth is a living snapshot of the moment a person enters this world on their own, armed only with the ideas and ideals they've acquired through their adolescence. Ideas and ideals that may or may nor suit the person they are fast becoming. By turns caustic, cruel and kindhearted - the play details the pressures that come along with taking responsibility for who you are, and who you want to become.
