Set on an indoor soccer field, an award-winning play that details the experiences of high school girls as they prepare for their game - from politics, sports, and history to family, friendship, and everything in between.
From the producers: "The Wolves" is a portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals. 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.
"The Wolves" was originally produced in 2016 at The Duke on 42nd Street by The Playwrights Realm. The play was a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The production won an OBIE Ensemble Award and a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Ensemble. The play received nominations for the the Lucille Lortel Award, the Drama League Award, and the Outer Critics Circle Award. Here's a short trailer from that production:
