July 8th, 9th, and 10th at 7pm at The Glenn Hughes Penthouse
By Simon Stephens
Directed by Sam McHale
This show is set in a private school outside of Manchester, England, where a group of highly-articulate seventeen-year-olds flirt and posture their way through the day while preparing for their A-Level mock exams. With hormones raging and minimal adult supervision, the students must prepare for their future and survive the savagery of high school. Punk Rock is an honest and unnerving chronicle of contemporary adolescence. YATC hopes this show can be both surprising and eye-opening about serious issues involving today’s youth.
Actors: Ricky Spaudling, Matteo Abbruzzese, Noah Hazzard, Nate Kelderman, Lila Perlman, Eliza Jacobson, Julia Schoemig, and William Chang-Stucki
Misspoken Narratives: A Night of Feminism

What We Talk About When We Talk About Planned Parenthood By Alexa Derman Directed by Meg Ruppel
The two main characters Kitty and B may dip in and out of addiction and struggle to pay rent, but at least they have a system: she's entertaining and exciting, he's responsible and realistic. But in the aftermath of a necessary but difficult decision, their codependent routine is called into question. Can they find a way to love each other, or is their relationship all but over?
Actors: Sam Johns and Bella Brown

The Stonewater Rapture
July 22nd, 23rd, and 24th at 7pm at Glenn Hughes Penthouse
By Doug Wright
Directed by Ruby Daniel
Set on the front porch and in the living room of a conservative Texas home, the play tells the story of two teenagers whose sexual awakening has been severely hampered by the fundamentalist fervor that runs like power lines through the Bible Belt. The play follows Whitney, the well-meaning preacher’s son, and Carlyle, a vivacious eighteen-year old with an imagination to rival the rest of her puritanical upbringing. Together they struggle to wed their simplistic religious doctrine with the often painful complexity of the real world.
Actors: Analiese Guettinger and Joel Meyers
