The Wolves

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.

    The best ensemble play I've seen in my entire life. Destined to be a classic play on American adolesence.

    Innovative and surefooted, built on a confident awareness that the most momentous drama in our lives often expresses itself through the most unassuming and mundane moments.

    Fantastic show that really nails the spirit and tragedy of adolescence. Hilarious at moments and haunting at others; this show has the perfect blend. Super honest with its subject matter. There's a reason this play is produced so often.
