Production Description

Casting for "Pains Of Youth" by Ferdinand Bruckner, in a new version by Martin Crimp. Director states: "Following its critically acclaimed world premiere at the National Theatre in London, Martin Crimp’s version of Bruckner’s "Pains of Youth" comes to New York City for the first time." Synopsis: "Austria, 1923. A group of medical students, a maid, and a struggling writer negotiate connection, sex, and identity in a Vienna boarding house. As graduation nears, so do the realities of coming of age in a postwar world none of the characters planned to inherit. Betrayal, mind games, and disillusionment rule in this darkly comic and ultimately harrowing story of a restless generation not entirely unlike our own."
