UVA Drama presents The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe and directed by Amanda McRaven. Ruth Caplin Theatre.
From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, a girls indoor soccer team prepares for a succession of games while navigating their personal lives with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, The Wolves is smart, snappy, crude and honest. “I wanted to see a portrait of teenage girls as human beings,” says playwright Sarah DeLappe, “As complicated, nuanced, very idiosyncratic people who weren’t just girlfriends or sex objects or manic pixie dream girls but who were athletes and daughters and students and scholars and people who were trying actively to figure out who they were in this changing world around them.” Mature content.
