ABOUT THE SHOW:
By Sarah DeLappe
February 7 – 22, 2020
at Tempe Center for the Arts
Directed by Heather Lee Harper
FINALIST! 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
One of the most talked about and produced plays in recent years, THE WOLVES is at its core a fly-on-the-wall look at a girls’ high school soccer team as they go through their warm-ups. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A searing portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals. Listen very carefully.
CRITIC'S PICK! "The scary, exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence emanates from every scene of this uncannily assured first play by Sarah DeLappe." - The New York Times
