Casting Announcement: The Wolves

The Howland Company and Crow’s Theatre are bringing 2017 Pulitzer Prize finalist for drama, The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe, to Toronto.

Howland Company founding member Courtney Ch’ng Lancaster directs this story about a girls indoor soccer team, which captures adolescence in all its beauty and paints a portrait of nuanced young women navigating the game, their lives, and a growing understanding of a complicated world.

Two other company members are in the cast, Ruth Goodwin and Hallie Seline, who were most recently seen in Punk Rock. They will be joined by Rachel Cairns (Tarragon’s Bunny), Aisha Evelyna (short film Accidentals), Annelise Hawrylak (Dauntless City Theatre’s Twelfth Night), Ula Jurecka (Canadian Rep Theatre’s Dreams), Brittany Kay (Harold Green Jewish Theatre’s Mikveh), Heath V. Salazar (Storefront Theatre’s Chasse-Galerie), and Amaka Umeh (Solar Stage’s Munsch Mash).

The Wolves will have sound designed by Deanna H. Choi (Factory Theatre’s The Monument) and set and lighting designed by Jareth Li (Factory & Thousand Island Playhouse’s Prairie Nurse).

“The scary, exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence emanates from every scene of The Wolves, this uncannily assured first play by Sarah DeLappe, and at times your instinct is to shade your eyes.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times

On at Crow’s Theatre from October 8 to 27, 2018. For tickets or more information, click here.
