In Wolves, two men's folie à deux overtakes their small apartment and spills out onto city streets. When ex-boyfriend Jack brings a strange man home to woodland-obsessed Ben’s apartment, the Narrator can barely keep a lid on the looming violence. This “deconstruction” of the Little Red Riding Hood story is a darkly comic, predatory fairy tale for adults that explores the conflation of sex and fear in modern culture, the comfort of lava lamps, and the dangers of a handy axe.

"Playwright Steve Yockey fractures a familiar yarn – the Red Riding Hood story – into a prismatic and sometimes lacerating refl ection of the monsters that lurk in the streets of the big city – and also within." – Los Angeles TimesRead More

“Steve Yockey’s study of a small town boy unhinged by jealousy is his best play to date — smart, gory, bewitched.” – Atlanta Journal & Constitution (Best of 2012)
Wolves premiered at Actor's Express in Atlanta, Georgia in January 2012 as part of its National New Play Network.

CHORUS SIZE

N/A (Not a musical)

NARRATOR - a woman with a warm, soothing voice and a quirky sense of humor; she’s definitely your friend. Strong and put together, she’s also clearly in charge here. In a form fitting skirt and blouse, her hair up, high heels.

BEN - a young man, managing to look innocent and pretty together in spite of deep delusional psychosis and a crippling unrequited love. He covers well until he can’t. Barefoot, bed‐head, in jeans and a v‐neck white t‐shirt.

JACK - a young man, pretty, cocky, thinks he knows better, but without of place and a little too willing to believe; thus, starting to see things, but fighting it. In a fitted dark polo shirt & tight jeans, dressed for a date.

WOLF - a man, a bit scruffy, a guy’s guy. Casual, amiable, charm with hint of sorrow. But it’s more in what he says not how he says it. In a tight, graphic print t‐shirt & Levis sporting a dark blue bandana in his back left pocket.
