TORONTO — Woody Harrelson is coming to Toronto to direct Kenneth Lonergan’s play “This Is Our Youth” at the Berkeley Street Theater for a limited run Sept. 22-Oct. 18.
“This Is Our Youth,” a satiric depiction of 48 hours in the lives of three middle-class teenagers on New York’s Upper West Side, will star Fabrizio Filippo (“Waydowntown,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), Marya Delver (“Last Wedding”) and Marcello Cabezas (“Blue Murder”), who is also the play’s producer.
“Woody Harrelson brings the right sensibility to this piece of theater, and we are elated to be able to offer him an interesting vehicle to further explore his storytelling passions,” Cabezas said. ” ‘This Is Our Youth’ is the type of play that comes around once in a lifetime, so we look forward to a positive response from the community, hopefully equaling the critical success this show recently had in London’s West End.”
“This Is Our Youth” opened in 1996 Off Broadway; this is its Canadian professional premiere.
