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.
DeLappe’s first play, THE WOLVES, won the American Playwriting Foundation Relentless Award and was a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
“The scary, exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence emanates from every scene of The Wolves.” — New York Times
