The Hippodrome Theatre and the University of Florida School of Theatre + Dance
 proudly present
“The Wolves” by Sarah DeLappe


The Hipp partners with the University of Florida School of Theatre + Dance to bring the acclaimed new play The Wolves to the stage. Game on! Ferociously funny, The Wolves is an unflinching depiction of a suburban girls soccer team, and a riveting slice-of-life portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls.

“It’s exhilarating, stunning, and hysterical,” Lauren Warhol Caldwell said. THE WOLVES submerge into the world of politics, pop culture and teenage anxiety. “This is a high-energy play with crackling dialogue and fascinating characters,” said Jerry Dickey, Ph.D.

A particular event forces the tribe to face what it takes to get through as one organism – complete, fierce and strong – in their plight of winning games.

A finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize, the Lucille Lortel and Drama League awards for Best Play, as well as for the Outer Critics’ Circle John Gassner Award for Outstanding New American Play, and winner of the 2015 Relentless Award for Playwriting, The Wolves was named one of the year’s best plays by The New York Times.

FINALIST! 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
WINNER! 2015 Relentless Award for Playwriting

CRITIC’S PICK! “The scary, exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence emanates from every scene of this uncannily assured first play by Sarah DeLappe.” – The New York Times

“DeLappe has created an ensemble of distinct female characters without leaning on romantic partners or traditional feminine tropes to define them.” – Theatremania

“DeLappe’s exquisitely orchestrated cross talk and overlapping banter, dense with profanity and jokes, is quite musical.” – Time Out NY

“The Wolves is a delightful meditation on society, sex, and soccer…DeLappe’s dialogue is hilarious and idiosyncratic, moving swiftly from gross-out humor to pain […] She offers us ninety minutes in a smart, sympathetic, female world. It’s a patch of Astroturf I would gladly set foot on again.” – The Village Voice
