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. The Wolves is an insightful portrait of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.

Lean In & Engage
Glimpses of the Creative Process
Assistant Stage Manager Mikayla Talbert ’23 (Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Design & Production – Stage Management) is on Shenandoah University women’s soccer team and she has been teaching skills to the cast.
The Wolves features an all-female cast in a contemporary examination of American teenage experience, moving from the funny to the terribly sad in the blink of an eye.
Q: What are students learning or experiencing through this process? What excites you about working on this project/program?
“We rarely do productions which are as contemporary, idiomatic and close to the students as this one. The show features an all-female-identifying cast, and all but one character is a teenager. The dialogue features overlapping conversations and is extremely naturalistic. At the same time, the actors are in constant motion with soccer drills and warm ups. So in many ways, this show is unlike others the students have worked on, but is actually most connected to their training in realistic acting methods.”
– Carolyn Coulson, director
Q: What are you excited about for audiences to experience?
“Our audiences do not regularly see productions of plays that are as contemporary and naturalistic as The Wolves. The show engages the senses in different ways from other plays. The play was also a finalist for the Pulitzer prize in drama, so it’s great for our audiences to get to see it!”
– Carolyn Coulson, director
