Message:
The Wolves written by Sarah DeLappe Nov 16-18 Somewhere in suburban America, a girls' soccer team dribbles and scrimmages, their voices echoing off the high ceiling. They are claiming territory, cleats digging into the AstroTurf. This play is a shout; an all-female cast navigates the pitfalls and ferocious possibilities of adolescent womanhood.

$3 Tickets at 413-597-2425 The Williams Theatre Department is proud to present Sarah DeLappe's 2017 Pulitzer Prize Finalist play, The Wolves. Somewhere in suburban America, a girls' soccer team dribbles and scrimmages, their voices echoing off the high ceiling. They are claiming territory, cleats digging into the AstroTurf. This play is a shout; an all-female cast navigates the pitfalls and ferocious possibilities of adolescent womanhood. How do we speak our world into being? Director Shayok Misha Chowdhury, Arthur Levitt, Jr. '52 Artist-in-Residence, transforms the CenterStage into an indoor soccer field, with scenic design by John Rodriguez (Williams class of '18 ) and lighting design by Abigail Hoke Brady. A post-performance "Talk Back" with the director will be held on Saturday, November 11 and will also include Williams faculty members Kathryn Kent, Professor and Chair of English and Christina Simko, Assistant Professor of Sociology. Shayok Misha Chowdhury is a queer Bengali director and writer based in New York City. He is co-founder of the Lonely Painter Project, an interdisciplinary collaborative which looks to performance as the art of embodied inquiry. His work has been or is currently being developed at Soho Rep, Ars Nova, New York Theatre Workshop, SPACE on Ryder Farm, HERE Arts Center, the New York Musical Festival, the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, and the CATWALK institute. A Kundiman Fellow and recipient of awards from Fulbright and the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, Misha's writing has been published in The Cincinnati Review, TriQuarterly, Hayden's Ferry Review, Portland Review, Asian American Literary Review, Lantern Review, and elsewhere. He has co-authored four musicals with composer Laura Grill Jaye and was a vocalist on the Grammy-winning album Calling All Dawns.
