Pacific Theatre Department Presents "The Wolves" | 2022 Spring
Pacific University’s Theatre Department is proud to present its Spring 2022 production, The Wolves, written by Sarah DeLappe and directed by Jacob Coleman.
The Wolves was a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The committee wrote: "For a timely play about a girls’ high school soccer team that illuminates with the unmistakable ping of reality the way young selves are formed when innate character clashes with external challenges.”
Set in an indoor soccer facility, this production is a cross-campus collaboration. Performances will take place in the Stoller Center, Field House All Courts 140C. Pacific's theatre department has been working with Athletics not just in the space, and for equipment, but also in rehearsals.
A member of the Pacific women's soccer team, Madi Snyder ’25, is present at rehearsals as a consultant for accuracy, and soccer player Peyton Seals ’23 joins the stage for her theatrical debut. Pacific Biology Professor Lisa Sardinia is a notable cast member who plays the soccer mom.
A synopsis from Concord Theatricals: “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.”
