Diving head first into Malleson's life-long obsessions, sex and social justice - Youth, first published and produced in 1916, is a backstage comedy; the story of a young playwright's first theatrical endeavor-and first love. Youth is charged with passion and rides on a wave of breathtaking prose and youthful energy.
In Youth, audiences will see what drew Malleson to Chekhov's story of the artist who questions the value of art and beauty. You can also see Malleson becoming the playwright who would write Yours Unfaithfully and Conflict.
