*This Is Our Youth* at Empyrean, Nov. 1-11

Kenneth Lonergan’s 1996 drama about disaffected youth foundering in a life of drugs and social alienation moves downtown to the Empyrean Coffeehouse for two weekends: Nov. 1-4, Nov. 8-9, and Nov. 11 (at 8 pm, Thursdays-Saturdays, but at 4 pm on the two Sundays).
The play premiered in Gonzaga’s Russell Theatre in August for a one-weekend run. “The move downtown is meant to reach out to a young audience with a contemporary play about growing up without role models, searching for relationships, and bearing the scars of dysfunctional families,” says director Brian Russo, who is alos associate professor of communications and theater arts at Gonzaga.
Tickets: $7. Call 323-6551.
