THE WOLVES A Kickin' New Play By Sarah DeLappe Directed by Stuart Meltzer Presented by Zoetic Stage and Adrienne Arsht Center This Pulitzer Prize finalist centers on the lives and experiences of nine high school girls through their weekly Saturday morning pre-game soccer warmups, using their team and relationships as a metaphor for survival in 21st Century America. Different personalities and backgrounds clash, as these young women navigate the bumpy terrain of being a teenager living in America today. This stunning new work, highly theatrical and still true to life, is one of the most anticipated titles in the current American theater season.
