UTC Theatre Co. kicks off its new season with The Wolves, a Pulitzer Prize finalist for drama, written by Sarah DeLappe
The Wolves examines the lives of an American girls’ soccer team with speed, ferocity and humor. Known only by the numbers on their matching jerseys, the characters in The Wolves reveal their personalities in different ways as we see them prepare for weekly soccer games.
Director Gaye Jeffers said she believes DeLappe created a space for the characters to bring their ideas and challenges into the neutral space of an indoor sports complex. “Ultimately, the show embraces the idea of team and teamwork,” said Jeffers.“From movement and gestures as they practice to the words they choose, they maneuver through competition, affection and fear…together and as individuals.”
Temporarily relocated during construction at the UTC Fine Arts Center, the production takes place in the Elementary School gymnasium at Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences.
The creative team includes Gaye Jeffers, director; Adam Miecielica, set design; Andrew Haueter, costume design; and Jeff Davis, lighting design and technical direction.
Cast: Sarah Bidini, Ashlyn Buckner, Katey Dailey, Autumn Hemmelgarn, Claire Johnson, Emeline Phinney, Molly Smith, Anne Swedberg, Julia Walker and Linsey Watkins
