The Wolves

January 31 - February 9, 2019

By Sarah DeLappe
Directed by Mary Beth Easley

David Thayer Theatre
UI Theatre Building, 200 N Riverside Dr, Iowa City, IA, 52242

Sarah DeLappe's The Wolves breaks barriers - not in form or style - but by being one of the first plays that truthfully explores and celebrates the intricacies of growing up as teenage women in present-day America. In this moment, all women are striving to take control of their bodies, and their narratives. A play of youth, it prtrays the need to share emerging ideas about personal and global events, raw and open wounds, and the struggle to rise above the pressures put upon female athlete-warriors by men, coaches, pees and society.

The Wolves is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Please Note: This production contains mild adult themes and strong language.
