The hottest play in North America is coming to Calgary.
And it’s got a bit of a kick.
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 teen girls who just want to score some goals.
This production is being co-produced with Verb Theatre and Calgary Young People’s Theatre, and will feature performances by nine real teenagers as well as Verb Theatre’s own Anna Cummer!

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
“DeLappe has created an ensemble of distinct female characters without leaning on romantic partners or traditional feminine tropes to define them.” – Theatremania
“DeLappe’s exquisitely orchestrated cross talk and overlapping banter, dense with profanity and jokes, is quite musical.” – Time Out NY
“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
