Punk Rock  

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

What We Talk About When We Talk About Planned Parenthood

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

Emotional Creature  

By Eve Ensler                                                                                                                                                         Directed by Ray McCann and Ricky Spaulding

This show follow the stories of girls from around the world. It focuses on the complexities of being a women in the world and features small monologues as well as larger group scenes. Our hope is that this show reflects an international perspective about what being a girl means. The show is meant to be a conversation between the characters and the society they live in.

Actors: Olivia Sterne, Bella Brown, Eliza Jacobson, Sophie Hankes, Ada Bowles, and Teofila SanJose

The Stonewater Rapture  

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

This Is Our Youth

By Kenneth Lonergan                                                                                                                                               Directed by Analiese Guettinger and Sam McHale

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 then the characters themselves can possibly imagine.

Past Curfew: A Festival of One Acts

    Featuring:

Long Ago and Far Away

By David Ives                                                    
Directed by HwaYoun Kang

A young, married, yuppie couple, about to move out of their NYC apartment, get swept up in a bizarre scenario filled with time travel and switched identities as they explore the nature of reality and their existence in the past, present, and future on a fateful winter evening.

Childhood

By Thorton Wilder
Directed by Travis Frank

This provocative, sometimes chilling comedy, Wilder renders a child’s-eye view of the grown-up world, as a father, a mother, and their three children play a revealing game of make-believe in which their children pretend to be orphans. This play blurs the lines between perception and reality, artifice and innocence.

The Love Talker

By Jamie Jordan
Directed by Rey Zane.

Gruesome Playground Injuries
