Wayward young people working hard to grow up — that’s the big picture for Kenneth Lonergan’s drama about three friends on the cusp of adulthood navigating their lives in 1982 New York, out from under their dysfunctional parents but still making a mess of things in the arenas of friendship and love. In this local production, Ed Stern, longtime producing artistic director at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, directs three Xavier University theater students — Mac Blais, Griff Bludworth and Tatum Hunter. He’s excited to work with actors who are exactly the right age for their roles.
Through Sunday. $12-$17. Gallagher Student Center Theater, Xavier University, 3800 Victory Parkway, Evanston, 513-745-3939, xavier.edu/theatre.
