This Is Our Youth

By Kenneth Lonergan

Directed by Charlie Bauer

Forty-eight hours…three very lost young souls in the big city at the dawn of the Reagan Era: A dejected nineteen-year-old who steals fifteen thousand dollars from his abusive lingerie-tycoon father; The charismatic domineering drug-dealing friend who helps him put the money to good use; and the anxiously insightful young woman he yearns for.

Hilarious, painful, and compassionate, THIS IS OUR YOUTH is a living snapshot of the moment between adolescence and adulthood when many young people first go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers—ideas and techniques far more sophisticated than their parents ever realize, and far less effectual than they themselves can possibly imagine.
