An indoor soccer field somewhere in suburban America. Winter. Saturdays. Nine girls in uniform on an Astroturf field warm up in a series of exactly timed stretches and exercises. We overhear a stream of their overlapping dialogue:
#11: Midfield. no guys I just think it’s uh it’s uh ethically complicated
#25: Defense. why would you watch a documentary
#13: Midfield. yeah I heard she lives in the hills in this like yogurt thing with her mom
#46: Bench. New girl. I think you meant yurt
#2: Defense. we’re super pissed! that’s why we’re knitting scarves
#7: Striker. suck my tampon bitchesssss
#14: Midfield. my mom brought us orange slices
#8: Defense. hey it’s OK I don’t have any upper body strength either
#00: Goalie. (nods)
Wolves is fiercely funny, smart, big-hearted, sharp around the edges, felt intensely, closely held: the perfect manifestation of teenage girlhood. By the season’s end, amid wins and losses on and off the field, we see the team as warriors. Powerful. Human. Ready.
We are excited to assemble an all-female and nonbinary cast and crew.
The Wolves was made possible with support from a Women at Yale Arts Grant as part of the 50 Women At Yale 150 Celebration.
