The Wolves

COCAwrites Festival Headliner

COCAwrites Festival headliner The Wolves chronicles six Saturday mornings in the lives of a girls’ high school indoor soccer team as they prepare for their games each week. The Wolves deal with love, loss, and identity in ways that real teenagers do. The adolescent team members, each identifiable and different, are depicted in one of the most absorbing and specific ways in the American Theatre. Pulitzer Prize finalist The Wolves is the debut play of playwright Sarah DeLappe. COCA’s Production of The Wolves is directed by Ashleigh Akilah Rucker. 

Recommended for Ages 15+

About the COCAwrites Festival 

The COCAwrites Festival is a full production of a professional work introducing students to the 2022–2023 COCAwrites theme: Adaptation and Documentation. Students and audiences learn more about documentary theatre and the adaptation process of new work with both a professional production and staged readings of student work based on a companion text. 

About the COCAwrites Program 

COCAwrites focuses on the writing and development of new plays for multigenerational theatre audiences through collaboration and learning among professional and student playwrights and composers. COCA’s Pre-Professional Division Theatre Artist students in this program workshop new plays and musicals written by professional composers and playwrights from around the country while having the chance to develop their own new plays and musicals with the mentorship of these leaders. Performance and Design-Tech students also have the chance to grow their skill in the new play development space, experimenting with new performance techniques, theatrical designs, and functions by applying them to never-before-produced plays. COCA is thrilled to offer this training to students as new work gains attention and priority on all stages across America’s theatres.
