Hune Company's Living Room Series presents This is Our Youth
In 1982, on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the wealthy, articulate pot-smoking teenagers who were small children in the '60s have emerged as young adults in a country that has just resoundingly rejected everything they were brought up to believe in. The very last wave of New York City's '60s-style Liberalism has come of age—and there's nowhere left to go.
In meticulous, hilarious, and agonizing detail, This is Our Youth follows 48 hours of three very lost young souls in the big city at the dawn of the Reagan Era. Funny, painful, and compassionate, This is Our Youth 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 - ideas and techniques far more sophisticated than their parents ever realize, and far less effectual than they themselves can possibly imagine.
