Gloucester Stage ends the run of the critically acclaimed production of Academy Award nominated writer Kenneth Lonergan’s This Is Our Youth on Sunday, August 25 in the air-conditioned comfort of Gloucester Stage Company at 267 East Main Street, Gloucester, MA. Kenneth Lonergan’s funny, compassionate and powerful work 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. In meticulous and hilarious detail, Lonergan examines the lives of three privileged teenagers in 1980’s Manhattan’s Upper West Side – when and where an abundance of worldly knowledge proves no substitute for familial affection. Directed by Lewis D. Wheeler, This Is Our Youth features the return of Jimi Stanton and Amanda Collins from 2012’s critically acclaimed 9 Circles, and the Gloucester Stage debut of Elliot Norton award winner Alex Pollock.
The performance schedule for the final week of performances of This Is Our Youth is Wednesday, August 21 through Saturday, August 24 at 8 pm; a Saturday matinee on August 24 at 3 pm and a Sunday performance on August 25 at 4 pm.
