Youth | Theatre Philadelphia


A new play by James Ijames

A community is disrupted when a mysterious young man joins a church youth group in this extraordinary new play by “U.S. theatre’s next major voice” (Broad Street Review). Wyatt, a self-proclaimed non-believer, arrives and miracles start to occur. Youth pastor Dave and his flock of young congregants must grapple with the meaning behind these remarkable events, even as they wrestle with their own issues of identity, sexuality and faith. Barrymore, Whiting and Terrence McNally Award-winning playwright James Ijames weaves together magical realism and rousing, gospel-inflected songs in this heartfelt exploration of what it means to live and love in a world where anything is possible.

With a "Wine Down Wednesday" in the lobby on 2/13 (7:15-7:45pm) featuring a Q&A session with Dramaturg Adrena Williams, and a "Speaker's Night" talk-back with Playwright James Ijames and Director Ed Sobel on 2/14 following the 8pm performance.
