THIS IS OUR YOUTH
In 1982, on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the wealthy, articulate, pot-smoking teenagers who were small children in the '60s have emerged as young adults in a country that has just resoundingly rejected everything they were brought up to believe in. The very last wave of New York City's '60s-style Liberalism has come of age—and there's nowhere left to go. THIS IS OUR YOUTH follows forty-eight hours of three very lost young souls in the big city at the dawn of the Reagan Era: Warren Straub, a dejected nineteen-year-old who steals fifteen thousand dollars from his abusive lingerie-tycoon father; Dennis Ziegler, the charismatic domineering drug-dealing friend who helps him put the money to good use; and Jessica Goldman, the anxiously insightful young woman Warren yearns for. THIS IS OUR YOUTH is a living snapshot of the moment between adolescence and adulthood.

Dedicated to creating theatrical moments so specific and honest, that we get to see the reflections of ourselves on stage. We believe everyone is an artist just as long as we choose to show up with open hearts and a playful, child-like aim.
