THE STORY: Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. 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 portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.
THE REVIEWS: “The scary, exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence emanates from every scene of this uncannily assured first play by Sarah DeLappe.” – The New York Times; “DeLappe has created an ensemble of distinct female characters without leaning on romantic partners or traditional feminine tropes to define them.” – Theatremania; “DeLappe’s exquisitely orchestrated cross talk and overlapping banter, dense with profanity and jokes, is quite musical.” – Time Out NY; “The Wolves is a delightful meditation on society, sex, and soccer…DeLappe’s dialogue is hilarious and idiosyncratic, moving swiftly from gross-out humor to pain […] She offers us ninety minutes in a smart, sympathetic, female world. It’s a patch of Astroturf I would gladly set foot on again.” – The Village Voice
