The Committee on Theater and Performance Studies is opening the 2023-2024 season with a professionally led production of Sarah DeLappe’s tour-de-force and 2017 Pulitzer finalist, The Wolves. The play follows a high school women’s soccer team through their pre-game warmups across a season, enduring the trials of young womanhood with raw and driven dialogue and free, expressive staging.
