The Wolves

By Sarah DeLappe
A Co-Production with Verb Theatre

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 American girls who just want to score some goals.

This production is being co-produced with one of Calgary’s most daring professional theatre companies, Verb Theatre and will also feature a performance by award-winning professional actor Anna Cummer!
