Full Length Play, Dramatic Comedy / 10f
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
