This Is Our Youth
This Is Our Youth

Kenneth Lonergan's play 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.

This Is Our Youth

Play, Comedy, Original, Broadway

Setting

Dennis Ziegler's apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, in late March, 1982.

Description

Set in New York in 1982, This is Our Youth follows 48 hours in the lives of three very lost young souls: Warren (Michael Cera), a dejected 19-year-old who has just stolen $15,000 from his abusive, tycoon father; Dennis (Kieran Culkin), his charismatic, drug-dealing friend who helps Warren put the stolen money to good use; and Jessica (Tavi Gevinson), 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.
