The Wolves

By Sarah DeLappe
Directed by Leora Morris

Squats, jumping jacks, lunges, repeat! The Wolves Junior Girls’ Soccer Team train at the air dome every Saturday morning without fail. As they warm up they chat about everything from world events to menstrual cycles, navigating the joys and complexities of being part of a pack.

This is a play about
fragility connection pivots connection identity discovery reality women

It leaves me asking
What team am I on? How can I champion the position I embody?/ How will these young women’s lives change and how many will be looking for change after the play ends?/ In what ways are we truly all the same?? What parts of myself am I asked to sacrifice to gain membership in any particular group?/ Where do we go from here?/ How can we make navigating adolescence easier for the next generation? Was I like these girls at that age?

My character is asking
Can I hold three things in two hands? (00)
How much good do I have to give, in order for it to be given back to me? (2)
what is it like in up there in heaven?… heaven exists right? (8)
How do I fit into the world around me? (14)
Is there such thing as “good” and “bad”? (11)
Why is there so much stress over control, when you can’t really control anything? (25)
Why do I have to make many decisions about my future at 17 years old? (7)
How can I fit in the group while still staying true to myself? (46)
What happens now? (13)

My character is listening to
D’yer Mak’er by Led Zeppelin (00)
Say Amen (Saturday Night)- Panic! At the Disco (2)
Time in a Tree (Raleigh Ritchie), Wolves (Selena Gomez) (8)
Starships by Nicki Minaj (14)
Mother Mother by Tracy Bonham - “I’m hungry, I’m dirty, I’m losing my mind… everything’s FINE” (11)
Graceland Too By Phoebe Bridgers (25)
Blonde Hair, Black Lungs by Sorority Noise (7)
Fight Song by Taylor Swift and Rachel Platten (46)
Pass the Dutchie by Musical Youth (13)

It makes me wish
...That we could see the specialized offerings we have to give more inherently…that the female bonds we make are valued more within ourselves and society..I allowed myself to enjoy the awkwardness and energy of being a girl in high school and I wish I didn’t judge the energy I had...That I played more soccer!...I didn’t spend my teenage years trying to grow up too quickly…That I would remember to hold onto my youth and curiosity more.…I could talk to my younger self and tell her that she didn’t do anything wrong.…That the world was a kinder place.
That I can be empowered as a young female 

OH and one more thing
In a world where you can be anything, be kind to yourself.
7’s favourite food is mac and cheese with fried chicken. But if you ask, it’s Greek salad with dressing on the side and a diet Coke.
“Everybody, um, do something crazy!”
There are two wolves inside of you
don’t forget to play!
People are often stronger than they appear and have faced more traumas than they voice.
