Second Stage Presents: This is Our Youth

Sarah Corey ’15 invites you to a play this weekend:

Thursday, Friday, Saturday 8pm in the Westco Cafe. No tickets needed.

In 1982, on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, three pot-smoking teenagers are resoundingly rejecting the 1960s ideals of their affluent parents. In hilarious and bittersweet detail, Youth presents a living snapshot of the moment between adolescence and adulthood by following forty-eight turbulent hours in the lives of three very lost souls at the dawn of the Reagan Era.

Slender James in the National Beard and Moustache Championships

Let Simon Riker ’14 and the hombres calientes of Slender Jimenez show you why a cappella is Latin for “in chapel style”:

Join Wesleyan’s moistest, most bedraggled a cappella group in Wesleyan’s House Of The Lord as we showcase our most perfectly cultivated facial hair. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll probably have a cold sweat or two as we assert our powers of preening and outrageous levels of testosterone for the better part of an hour on Thursday night.

There will be one five-hour intermission, and five one-hour intermissions.

Hint: Theresa’s coming home.
