      Don’t delay, folks   the deadline for purchasing tickets to this performance is Monday, July 14. Except for the seats we’re holding for patrons who require ASL-interpretation, this production is almost completely sold out. After July 14, unpurchased seats that are reserved for people who require ASL-interpretation will be released for sale to the general public.

      This Is Our Youth

      By Kenneth Lonergan

      Directed by ensemble member Anna D. Shapiro




      The Steppenwolf Theatre Company production of This Is Our Youth will be produced on Broadway by Scott Rudin in Fall 2014 at the Cort Theatre.


      Set in New York in 1982, This Is Our Youth follows forty-eight hours in the lives of three very lost young souls: Warren, a dejected nineteen year old who has just stolen $15,000 from his abusive, tycoon father; Dennis, his charismatic drug-dealing friend who helps Warren put the stolen money to good use; and, Jessica, the anxiously insightful young woman who Warren yearns for. Funny, painful and compassionate, This Is Our Youth is a living snapshot of the moment when many young people go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers—far more sophisticated than their parents realize, and far less effectual than they themselves can possibly imagine.


      Featuring Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin and Tavi Gevinson.


      Sign Language Interpreters: Al Raci and Lissa Treger.
