Brokaw, who directed the 1992 Second Stage debut of the Lonergan play, reunites with original Off-Broadway cast members Mark Ruffalo, Josh Hamilton and Missy Yager. This Is Our Youth runs through March 22 at the Skirball Cultural Center and will be recorded and subsequently broadcast on L.A.T.W.'s nationally syndicated radio theatre series "The Play's the Thing."

"In 1982," This Is Our Youth press notes state, "on Manhattan's Upper West Side, three pot-smoking teenagers caught up in the excesses of the 'Me Generation' nevertheless resoundingly reject the 1960s ideals of their affluent parents. In hilarious and bittersweet detail, This is Our Youth follows 48 turbulent hours in the lives of three very lost souls at the dawn of the Reagan Era, presenting an acerbic look at that generation in its ironic struggle both to resist and to attain adulthood."

For tickets, priced $20-$48, to any of "The Play's The Thing" productions at the Skirball Cultural Center, 2701 N. Sepulveda Boulevard, call the L.A. Theatre Works box office at (310) 827-0889. For more information visit latw.org.
