This is Our Youth first played at the Garrick Theatre in March this year with Hollywood stars Hayden Christensen, Jake Gyllenhaal and Anna Paquin, and then from 2nd Apr to 15 Jun 02 by Matt Damon, Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix.
The drama is set in 1982 at the dawn of the Reagan era, and forty-eight hours in the lives of Dennie, Warren and Jessica - three rich and bored middle-class teenagers from New York's Upper West Side. Caught up in the new yuppie culture (for which money, power and success are all), they have stolen $15,000 from their parents without much of an idea of what to do with it. So, without a care for the consequences, they blow it all on a reckless, hedonistic spending spree!
