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. 

REVIEWS

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, Read More 

"DeLappe has created an ensemble of distinct female characters without leaning on romantic partners or traditional feminine tropes to define them." - Theatremania, Read More 

"DeLappe's exquisitely orchestrated cross talk and overlapping banter, dense with profanity and jokes, is quite musical." - TimeOut NY, Read More 

"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, Read More
