ABOUT THIS IS OUR YOUTH

 

In 1982, on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the wealthy, articulate potsmoking 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. In meticulous, hilarious, and agonizing detail, THIS IS OUR YOUTH is a living snapshot of the moment between adolescence and adulthood when many young people first go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers—ideas and techniques far more sophisticated than their parents ever realize, and far less effectual than they themselves can possibly imagine.

 

“A rambunctious and witty play about wayward teenagers and postadolescents that doesn't turn youthful travails into plastic rap…THIS IS OUR YOUTH—by turns caustic, cruel and compassionate—is the real real world.”

- New York Times

“This is quite simply, a sterling example of why we keep going…THIS IS OUR YOUTH is as good as theater gets.”

- NY Daily News

WARWICK BEACON - Gritty, raw 'This is our youth' at Burbage

January 30, 2019

It is hard to believe that the playwright who gave us the low-key Oscar-winning “Manchester by the Sea” also wrote the gritty, raw “This Is Our Youth,” now on stage at Burbage Theatre. 

PAWTUCKET TIMES -This Is Our Youth offers a rewarding journey into not-too-distant past

January 31, 2019

Kenneth Lonergan's play "This Is Our Youth" is set in 1982, the Reagan years, but the themes are more specific to an age than an era.  Youthful rebellion clouded by...

Motif ri - This is our youth at Burbage: Burn-Out Bromance

January 27, 2019

There is an old joke that there are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen, those who let things happen, and those who ask, “What happened?” This is a play about that third group.

 EDGE MEDIA NETWORK - THIS IS OUR YOUTH

February 1, 2019

Burbage Theatre Company's "This Is Our Youth" is a satirical look at the shallow and greedy culture of the 1980s. It was the Reagan era, when everyone was striving to make as much money as possible.
