The Wolves

Studio Theatre
1501 14th St. NW Washington

Playwright Sarah DeLappe's acclaimed dark comedy The Wolves opens on a high school girls' indoor soccer team warming up with lunges and stretches. 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. This unforgettable show is a portrait of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals. Watch as these fierce, fearless females engage in a tale of privilege and pain onstage at the Studio Theatre in Washington, DC.

MetroWeekly - Highly Recommended

"...Offering a fly-on-the-wall glimpse into the private world of a suburban girls' indoor soccer team, Sarah DeLappe's The Wolves dives into the high-pressure depths of nine teammates, dropping in on private conversations as they prep for matches. Conversations sound real, not written, yet paradoxically ring with the harmony and insight of the playwright's assured ear for dialogue."

"...Women are often underrepresented on stage and screen, but in The Wolves, DeLappe flips the script. The Wolves boasts an all-female cast and the lack of any male in a play set in the male-dominated world of sports is innovative. In The Wolves, our perception of the Wolves is in no way reliant on male validation. The Wolves do not need to charming, or cute or (and I cringe here) sexy. Not a man in sight or insight. Just girls being girls, in whatever way they see fit."

Talkin Broadway - Highly Recommended

"...Playwright Sarah DeLappe has created nine distinct characters with individual experiences and diverse possible futures who meld together as a unit when it's time to compete. Director Marti Lyons has guided her actors into a natural rhythm of physical and verbal interactions, avoiding any sense of "playing young" or inauthenticity."

"...Get to Studio Theatre not only to support a beautiful movement to shine a spotlight on excellent new work being written by women, but also because it is simply one of the most well-acted productions in D.C. this season."

"...“The Wolves” is part of the 2018 Women’s Voices Theater Festival in D.C., and it is delightful and amazing to see a play that shows the interior, coming-of-age lives of girls. It is even more refreshing that these girls are concerned about so many things, and in so many different ways, and that we are allowed to see them grope their way to a more mature understanding of the world and themselves in that world. Girls’ experiences and voices matter and this play shows that on so many levels."

"...There are moments of over-writerliness, but she manages to stop herself at the brink of cliche time and time again. The subject matter offers many opportunities to fall into those traps, and as the climax was becoming apparent, I thought 'OK, here we go.' But no-even here, DeLappe and the cast, including soccer mom Anne Bowles in a crucial part, get it just right, skirting around one of the most tempting contrivances in theater, and leaving us with a searing tableau instead."
