SHOW CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT AND STRONG LANGUAGE. NOT FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES.|
The Wolves, by Sarah DeLappe, first debuted at The Duke Theater in 2016. This Pulitzer-nominated drama centers on the daily experiences of a group of high-school girls. Played out over a series of pre-game warmups for the girls indoor soccer team, the play deals with themes of isolation, anxiety, and community. A remarkably modern play, The Wolves handles current events like the Family Separation Crisis through the eyes of bystanders, using the agonizing disenfranchisement of these girls as an artistic cudgel. Another interesting outgrowth of The Wolves modernity is its unique style of dialogue. With multiple lines of dialogue layering over one another in a frenetic back-and-forth, the play stretches theatres conventions over a new and interesting form.
The plays characters are without names, instead being known by their team numbers, but the unique and vibrant personality of each is more identifiable than any Tom, Dick, or Harry. (Or Tina, Donna, or Rudy, as the case may be.) Lauded by the New York Times and The Economist, this contemporary work is only getting started when it comes to the impact it will surely have.
