What is ‘The Wolves’ about?

Stretch, squat, lunge, kick. Somewhere in Middle America, an all-girl high school soccer team prepares. A pack of teenage warriors ready for battle. All that matters is the win.

Sarah DeLappe’s award-winning play uniquely captures the essence of being a young woman today. The girls talk about everything from genocide and refugees to Harry Potter and tampons, wrestling with the big and small questions of our times.

Disarmingly authentic and fiercely funny, THE WOLVES is a portrait of self-discovery and ambition, speaking to the 16 year old in all of us.

Sarah DeLappe's award-winning debut play receives its European premiere at Theatre Royal Stratford East in a new production by Gate Theatre's Artistic Director Ellen McDougall.
