YATC's 8th Season of shows were:
This is Our Youth
By Kenneth Lonergan directed by Analiese Guettinger and Sam McHale
July 10th, 11th, 12th
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
July 17th, 18th, and 19th
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
By Rajiv Joseph directed by Jamie Kelley
July 24th, 25th, 26th
Gruesome Playground Injuries tells the atypical story of Kayleen and Doug during certain times in their ever-evolving lives. Interacting at the most peculiar of times in their respective lives, they embark on a journey in which they must fight a constant battle against the hardships of mental and physical pain, tragedy, and ultimately love.
