‘This is Our Youth’

Pulitzer Prize winner Kenneth Lonergan’s coming of age play ‘This is Our Youth’, directed by Riley Lane, 
Set to the backdrop of the Reagan era this dark comedy will welcome you to the small and grungy studio apartment of Dennis. A philandering, drug dealing, abrasive young man. Dennis finds himself straddled with the task of ‘babysitting’ his good friend Warren who has stolen $15,000 from his father after being kicked out of home.
Warren, a reckless, well-meaning, and eccentric youth grapples with his actions and Dennis whilst struggling to lay low. Enter Jessica, an anxious and strong headed young woman who manages to give Warren a run for his money through their strained attempts at flirting.
This prolific play will have you witness the fumbling angst-ridden tries at human connection, the avoidance of adulthood and the acknowledgement of failure in a readily identifiable group of young people learning that actions have consequences.
Get tickets now to witness the perfect storm of adolescence, weed, hormones and emotion in this not to miss production bursting with WA talent!
