Red Turnip Theater is staging This Is Our Youth, a play by American dramatist and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan, this month!
Red Turnip offers a new theater experience by mounting the play at A Space Gallery which is intended for exhibits, gigs, and talks by local independent artists!
This Is Our Youth is a comedy about the "Me" Generation starring Jef Flores, Nicco Manalo, and Cindy Manalo who have huge shoes to fill. Mark Ruffalo, Josh Hamilton, and Missy Yager starred in the 1996 Off-Broadway original; Jake Gyllenhaal, Hayden Christensen, and Anna Paquin were featured in the 2002 West End version; while Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin, and Tavi Gevinson played the leads in the 2014 Tony-nominated Broadway revival!
The play is under the direction of Topper Fabregas who made his successful directorial debut in Rabbit Hole last year. We attended the press preview of This Is Our Youth and we can honestly say that we were blown away by the intensity of the actors!
You can catch This Is Our Youth at A Space Gallery on November 6, 7, 8, 20, 21 and 22. In the meantime, check out our MYXclusive interview with the cast!
