Set in an indoor soccer facility, with live-action soccer on stage, Sarah DeLappe’s play The Wolves is an urgent and timely ensemble piece depicting an all-girls soccer team tackling pressures, insecurities and loss. Focused entirely on the warm-up period before games, DeLappe achieves a remarkable variety of tone and ideas that yield rich and nuanced portraits of the players. The play moves through the paces of each character's development with overlapping dialogue and intense physicality and by season’s -- and play’s -- end, the girls find their footing in life and on the field as warriors. Tested and ready, they emerge united with grace in the face of unapologetic ferocity - they are The Wolves.
The Wolves was a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and was called by the New York Times “a thrilling debut play…that keeps you on the edge of your seat.” The Dan School of Drama and Music’s production is dedicated to the memory the late Professor Kim Renders, and will be directed by visiting professional Brenda Bazinet*. The Wolves will feature ten Queen’s University students.
