This is Our Youth
by Kenneth Lonergan
Directed by John Reynolds
Lab Theatre

Three privileged young adults experience 48 eventful hours at the dawn of the materialistic Reagan Era in this hard-hitting drama by Academy Award-winning author Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea). After stealing $15,000 from his tycoon father, 19-year-old Warren turns for help to his slightly older, drug-dealing friend, Dennis. As they concoct a scheme to buy cocaine with the stolen funds and resell it for profit, Warren falls for fashion student Jessica, threatening both the plan and their lives. Brutally frank and honest, This is Our Youth is a still-relevant portrayal of young people coming of age in a world they aren’t yet equipped to navigate.

This Is Our Youth is rich and sad and wry in its cruel-to-be-kind portrayal of disillusioned adolescents... How do you put away childish things, it asks, when you aren’t ready to pick up adult ones?”—The Guardian

This is Our Youth contains adult content and language that may not be appropriate for children.
