The Wolves, by Sarah DeLappe and directed by Glenda Byars

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 warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals, Sarah DeLappe’s 2017 Pulitzer Prize finalist, The Wolves, is a high energy ensemble play examining ambition, fear, and loss with humor and truth in a tightly packed 90 minutes.

Stop Kiss, by Diana Son and directed by Jonathan Harper

Sara and Callie are walking through New York City's West Village very late at night, when they share their first kiss. This leads to a vicious attack by an angry bystander, in which Sara is horribly injured. She falls into a coma, which becomes one of the major subjects of the play. George, Callie's good friend, tries to help with the situation, but there is little he can do. Peter, Sara's ex-boyfriend from St. Louis, comes to help nurse her back to health. Throughout Stop Kiss, relationships are explored, formed, and even ended. Diana Son elaborates on the depths of human emotion and compassion in this play.
