Written By: Kenneth Lonergan
Directed By: George Ivan Jankovic

The year is 1982. Ronald Reagan is President, and three young adults find themselves struggling with political disillusionment, romantic complexities, and the search for their own identities over forty-eight hours in New York. Nineteen-year-old Warren Straub, kicked out of home, steals fifteen thousand dollars from his abusive father; at his wit's end, he turns to his fast-talking friend Dennis Ziegler for help. In the midst of it is Jessica Goldman, an intelligent but anxious young woman who both challenges Warren and draws him in.

Darkly funny, painfully honest, and surprisingly tender, THIS IS OUR YOUTH speaks to the experiences of young people struggling to bridge the gap between adolescence and adulthood.
