The Wolves, by up-and-coming New York playwright Sarah De Lappe, comes to The Blue Room Theatre for a strictly limited season this August. Tickets for the Pulitzer Prize-nominated play are now on sale.
The Wolves has been kicking goals on stages across the globe and the anticipated Perth season is proudly presented by Red Ryder Productions. Under the direction of Emily McLean, nine of Perth's dynamic young actors will bring this sophisticated debut play to WA for the first time.
A soccer team of teenage girls somewhere in Middle America; The Wolves are close; they look out for each other. They laugh hard, train harder, and over a season, fight battles with each other and themselves. Undefeated, smart, tough; they are both terrified and terrifying as together they step into the arena of adulthood. But this is just the warm up. The real game is about to come crashing into their lives
Watch these incredible young women at play – joyful, wild and dangerous - where they grow up before your eyes. Life isn't a game – but each player realises she's part of a team, and never truly alone.
In 2019, women's sport is finally finding an audience; the West Coast Fever are selling out Perth Arena, interest in the AFL Women's competition is surging, the women's cricket team are World Champions and the Matildas competed in the FIFA Women's World Cup. Sam Kerr, Tayla Harris, and Ellyce Perry are becoming household names and the girls who are The Wolves show us why!
