Photo Flash: A First Look at THE WOLVES at Goodman Theatre

Game on! The Chicago premiere of Sarah DeLappe's The Wolves, a "smart, hilarious, delightful meditation on society, sex and soccer" (The Village Voice), directed by Vanessa Stalling, launches Goodman Theatre's 2018 Owen Theatre season. A 2017 Pulitzer Prize finalist, The Wolves follows a suburban girls soccer team as they navigate life's big questions and wage their own tiny battles-with all the "bark and bite" (Vulture.com) of a pack of adolescent warriors. Hailed as "one of the year's best plays" (The New York Times), The Wolves is DeLappe's break-out play that recently concluded an off-Broadway run at Lincoln Center Theater.

Stalling directs the Chicago premiere with an all-Chicago company including team members Angela Alise as #00, goalie; Isa Arciniegas as #25, captain; Taylor Blim as #2, defense; Natalie Joyce as #7, striker; Cydney Moody as #8, defense; Erin O'Shea as #46, bench; Sarah Price as #11, midfield; Aurora Real de Asua as #14, mid-field; Mary Tilden as #13, mid-field; and rounding out the cast is Meighan Gerachis as the Soccer Mom. Working with soccer skill building coach Katie Berkopec, each actor learned a series of real soccer drills and incorporated synchronized warm-ups-including squats, jumping jacks, quads, hamstrings, butterfly and more-in preparation for their role.

The creative team features designers who will transform the Goodman's 350 seat-flexible Owen Theatre into an indoor soccer field complete with AstroTurf, plexiglas, fans and fluorescents-including Collette Pollard (Sets), Noël Huntzinger (Costumes), Keith Parham (Lights) and Mikhail Fiksel (Sound). Nikki Blue is the Production Stage Manager.
