Beth Henley, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Crimes of the Heart, serves up another of her fine Southern-fried comedies. This funny and heartfelt play focuses on Carnelle Scott, a pageant hopeful with a large and dysfunctional family, who believes that winning the Miss Firecracker Contest will restore her reputation and vastly improve her life. But her path to the crown and sash becomes complicated when a cousin, a former Miss Firecracker winner, arrives unexpectedly. San Diego Theatre Critics Circle award-winner Samantha Ginn takes on the title role. Learn More

We left during the intermission...we just weren't entertained by the content of the story + the smoking during the show was hitting our sinuses. Having said that, personally ~ I would have stayed for the rest of the production but was outnumbered by the people I was with.
They’re gonna party like it’s 1982! It’s the dawn of a new era: the Reagan era. And the Counter-Culture’s kids are coming of age in New York City. Hilarious, insightful and poignant, This Is Our Youth shows 48 hours in the lives of three kids caught in the moment between adolescence and adulthood when the ideals and values inherited from their parents will guide them toward self-discovery or push them to self-destruction.
By Kenneth Lonergan (screenwriter of the films “Analyze This” and “You Can Count on Me”)
Directed by Francis Gercke
