“The Wolves” dives into the mysterious world of teenage girls.
Nine female actresses, all theatre majors at Fresno State, portray a group of high school juniors that make up the indoor soccer team “The Wolves”.
This all-woman cast successfully illustrates the raw interactions of young girls when adults, or men, aren’t around.
In the 80-minute production, each scene takes place during warm ups before their games, and the girls’ conversations range from genocide to yurts and onward to feminine hygiene.
The audience views the ups and downs of friendship and the disarray of multiple conversations going on at once, but each actress succeeds in uniquely characterizing each of their roles. Some of their personalities were hostile and assertive, while others were goofy or timid.
The cast excellently depicts a young woman’s lifestyle, adolescence, and what women talk about amongst each other behind closed doors.
