THE WOLVES Announced At Boise Contemporary Theater


THE WOLVES Announced At Boise Contemporary Theater

Game on! Sarah DeLappe's Pulitzer Prize nominated play The Wolves will launch BCT's 19|20 season. Hailed as "one of the year's best plays" by The New York Times, The Wolves follows nine fierce girls on an indoor soccer team as they face the challenges of adult life and forge their futures through the rituals of a sport they love - with all the bark and bite of a pack of adolescent warriors. The Wolves runs October 16 - November 9, 2019.

This powerful ensemble cast features NYC based actors Amela Karadza and Claris Park, Philadelphia based actors Connie Castanzo, Lindsay Mushett, and Emily Verla, as well as local actors Erin Davidson, Lex Gonzalez, Arianna Keever, Celine McMonigal, and Marley Snow King.

"On the surface The Wolves is about the relationships on a competitive girls soccer team, but really it is about the terrifying, magical and confounding leap from childhood to adulthood." Says Philadelphia based director Kittson O'Neil who tread the boards at BCT two years ago in Robert Askins' Hand to God. "The young women on this team are wildly different, united only by age and sport, but as the play unfolds they wound each other, heal each other and begin the long journey to know themselves."

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.
