The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe // Directed by Marti Lyons // Movement Direction by Stephanie Paul

Winter indoor soccer. Saturdays. Over quad stretches and squats, a team of young women prepares to defend the Wolves’ undefeated record, their banter spilling from tampons to genocide to the pressures of preparing for their adult lives. With an ear for the bravado and empathy of the teenage years, The Wolves explores the violence and teamwork of sports and adolescence, following a pack of 16-year-old girls who turn into warriors on the field. An acclaimed play from a new voice, Studio-commissioned writer Sarah DeLappe.
