Directed by Mark Brokaw
By Kenneth Lonergan
                 Directed by Mark Brokaw

This Is Our Youth was originally workshopped at Naked Angels. It was part of Act One 1995 Festival in Los Angeles, where it was staged as an one-act entitled, Betrayed By Everyone. In 1996, it was produced by the New Group in New York City. A much anticipated move was delayed due to difficulties in finding an appropriate theatre. Finally, in 1998 it moved to the Douglas Fairbanks Theatre for an open run. Unfortunately Josh was unavailable to reprise his role as Dennis. (It was taken over by Mark Rosenthal)
