The League of Youth

by Henrik Ibsen, adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher


April 8 – June 11, 2016

In a new adaptation full of sparkling wit and cynical humor by Jeffrey Hatcher, this political comedy follows the meteoric rise of ambitious young Stensgaard, an office-seeker who’s willing to say anything to win an election. Forming the “League of Youth” to lobby against his opposition, Stensgaard schemes, romances and manipulates in his rush to power. Ibsen’s most popular play in his lifetime, The League of Youth caused fighting in the streets, with conservatives claiming it was an attack on their party and liberals claiming it was an attack on theirs! A thought-provoking comedy that’s sure to feel shockingly familiar.
