The Wolves by Sarah Delappe
Postshow Q&A: Monday 4 July
Captioned performance: Friday 8 July, 7.15pm
we are THE WOLVES
Welcome to a planet of teenage girls.
From the safety of the suburbs, a girls soccer team wages war on a battlefield of artificial grass while navigating life's big questions.
The team is close-knit, they look out for each other. In an age where people are being driven to increasing isolation, these young women find strength and meaning in each other. As long as they play together, the violence, distrust and confusion off the field can be resisted. But this is just the warm up. The real game is about to come crashing into their lives.
The Wolves presents a season in the lives of these young women. We see their anxieties, hear their secrets, watch them resolve their petty squabbles and deeper divisions. The Wolves is a portrait of the pursuit of happiness for nine American teens who just want to score some goals.
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
Content warnings: This is a play about a group of teenage athletes talking, in private, before important games. As such, they often speak without sensitivity (including an ableist slur) and using graphic language. Their conversation touches on recent and violent world politics, Planned Parenthood, traumatic death, cancer, implied sexual assault and anxiety disorders.
Smoke is present during the final scene.
