MCC Theater has announced a final, two-week extension due to popular demand of Soho Rep's Wolf Play, in collaboration with Ma-Yi Theater Company.

Wolf Play, by Hansol Jung (Wild Goose Dreams) and directed by Dustin Wills (Wolf Play, Soho Rep), began previews on January 27, 2023, and opened on Tuesday February 14 at MCC Theater's Susan & Ronald Frankel Theater (511 W 52nd Street, New York, NY 10019). First extended through March 19, Wolf Play will now close on April 2, 2023.

MCC has also announced that a limited number of individual $25 student tickets are available on a first come, first served basis for the March 15 1pm student matinee performance. Ticketholders will be required to show a Student ID when picking up the tickets at the Box Office.

Following the March 18 performance, MCC and Ma-Yi Theater Company will co-host an open dialogue moderated by transracial, transnational Korean adoptee Meggin (Nam) Holtz, LMSW,TRA, and the President of the National Center on Adoption and Permanency, Adam Pertman. The two will facilitate a post-show discussion and Q&A on the complexity, intention of, and trauma born from transracial and transnational adoptions and their relation to many of the themes within Hansol Jung's Wolf Play.

When an off-the-record adoption goes awry, Jeenu's new parents learn just how far a wolf will go to defend its pack. Hansol Jung's Wolf Play is directed by Dustin Wills with exuberant imagination as MCC brings the critically acclaimed sold out Soho Rep production back to the stage.

The cast of Wolf Play includes Christopher Bannow (Oklahoma!) as "Peter," Esco Jouléy (Interstate) as "Ash," Brian Quijada (Oedipus El Rey) as "Ryan," Nicole Villamil (Network) as "Robin," and Mitchell Winter (Frontieres Sans Frontieres) as "Wolf."

MCC Theater's celebrated productions include Kate Nash's Only Gold with a book by Andy Blankenbuehler and Ted Malawer, Donja R. Love's soft; Ross Golan's The Wrong Man; Aziza Barnes' BLKS; Jocelyn Bioh's School Girls; Or, the African Mean Girls Play; Penelope Skinner's The Village Bike; Robert Askins' Hand to God (Broadway transfer; five 2015 Tony Award® nominations including Best Play); John Pollono's Small Engine Repair; Paul Downs Colaizzo's Really Really; Sharr White's The Other Place (Broadway transfer); Jeff Talbott's The Submission (Laurents/Hatcher Award); Neil LaBute's reasons to be pretty (Broadway transfer, three 2009 Tony Award® nominations, including Best Play), Some Girl(s), Fat Pig, The Mercy Seat, and All The Ways To Say I Love You; Michael Weller's Fifty Words; Alexi Kaye Campbell's The Pride; Bryony Lavery's Frozen (Broadway transfer; four 2004 Tony Award® nominations including Best Play, Tony Award® for Best Featured Actor); Tim Blake Nelson's The Grey Zone; Rebecca Gilman's The Glory of Living (2002 Pulitzer Prize finalist); Margaret Edson's Wit (1999 Pulitzer Prize); and musicals including Alice by Heart, Ride the Cyclone, Carrie, and Coraline.

Soho Rep provides radical theater makers with productions of the highest caliber and tailor-made development at key junctures in their artistic practice. The organization elevates artists as thought leaders and citizens who change the field and society. Artistic autonomy is paramount at Soho Rep; the organization encourages an unmediated connection between artists and audiences to create a springboard for transformation and rich civic life beyond the walls of its theater. Critics continue to herald Soho Rep as a go-to theater destination for new work. New York Magazine says, "this indispensable theater offers more excitement per chair than any space in town," and The New York Times says, "The downtown powerhouse... regularly outclasses the work done on many of the city's larger stages."

Soho Rep was named the "Best Theater in NYC" award by Time Out New York in their 2021 Best of the City Awards. Time Out New York wrote, "Soho Rep isn't the last word in downtown experimental theater: Better than that, it's often one of the first words, championing major voices at key points in their careers. Its astounding list of alums includes Richard Maxwell, Young Jean Lee, Adam Bock, Annie Baker, Nature Theater of Oklahoma, David Adjmi, Lucas Hnath, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Anne Washburn, Aleshea Harris and Jackie Sibblies Drury (whose Fairview, which premiered there, won the 2019 Pulitzer Prize). And Soho Rep's low ticket prices, including 99¢ Sundays, help keep some of the city's bravest, boldest and wildest theater within the reach of all New Yorkers."
