“This is Our Youth” is the work of playwright and Oscar winner Kenneth Lonergan who won the Best Director Oscar for "Manchester by the Sea" in 2017. Its young characters, a disaffected group of friends in the 1980s, could be from any generation as they resist their parents’ world while growing out of their own.

Set in New York in 1982, "This Is Our Youth" follows 48 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.

The New York Times called this acclaimed play an "acerbic portrait of the real real world".

This play is intended for mature audiences.
