Audiences can expect a good laugh as Catholic University’s drama department presents its fall 2019 mainstage production, The Wolves. Performances will take place September 26-29 at the Callan Theatre (in the Hartke Theatre complex, 3801 Harewood Rd. N.E., Washington, D.C.). 

The Wolves is a comedy written by Sarah DeLappe that focuses on nine teenage girls on a soccer team and their conversations about the challenges of emerging adulthood. The show will feature a cast of 10 Catholic University female sophomore, junior, and senior students from both the drama and musical theater departments. Director Jenna Duncan is a professional casting director from Maryland invited to direct this semester at Catholic University by the drama department. 

“It is uninterrupted insight into teenage girls that usually doesn’t happen in theater and allows us to see them without a relationship to men, but just functioning in relation to each other,” said Duncan. The show is contemporary, as it premiered in 2016 at the 42nd Street Theater in New York. Modern messages make it a relatable choice for students. 

Show times are September 26 and 28 at 7:30 p.m, September 27 at 8 p.m, and September 28 and 29 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 with available military, student, and faculty/staff discounts.
