Newly formed Vancouver theatre company, Midtwenties Theatre Society, is proud to present their first offering to the Vancouver arts community, This Is Our Youth, from Friday, July 14 to Monday, July 17; Wednesday, July 19; and Friday, July 21 to Sunday, July 23 at the Revue Stage on Granville Island.
A play by American dramatist and screenwriter, Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea), This Is Our Youth is a brilliant, darkly humorous, bittersweet portrait of youth poised on the cusp of the scary, disillusioning path to adulthood. In Trump-era New York City, three privileged Upper West Side kids the swaggering, drug-dealing Dennis; his dispirited, free-thinking best friend and whipping boy, Warren; and confused, self-conscious fashion student Jessica hang out, smoke pot, scheme for cash, challenge each other, and make tentative steps towards an authentic, vulnerable connection, all in a period of less than twenty-four hours in Dennis apartment.
A directorial debut for Midtwenties Theatre Societys Beau Han Bridge (CBCs The Romeo Section, ABCs Imaginary Mary), This Is Our Youth features Tsawwassens Mackenzie Cardwell (CWs Supernatural) as Jessica, Edmonton-born/Vancouver-based Quinn Hinch (TLCs Untold Stories of the E.R.) in his theatre debut as Warren, and Zack Currie (Angels in America), who recently studied at Studio 58, as Dennis.
