Gen X Play “This” by Melissa James Gibson

THIS is a play by Melissa James Gibson.

THIS is a play by Melissa James Gibson.

THIS is a Gen X Play. A raw and human tale about five Gen Xers who are trying to find their way through mid-life and face reality. (Please let me do something with my life before I die!)

Tart, witty, unromantic and full of Gen X angst, it explores the deepest of human feeling, honesty and grief. Called the most promising play to open Off-Broadway in 2009, it has completed its Midwest and Seattle debuts.

This was written by Melissa James Gibson, is a Canadian playwright based in New York.

The title of this post comes from a clip of the play featured in this YouTube teaser. I wish I could see the play in entirety.
