As girls from different schools and walks of life come together on a soccer field, The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe tries to guide you through the awkwardness and chaos of girl adolescence. The girls express thoughts on current political as well as personal issues in a variety of ways often fumbling about while simultaneously wanting to be heard and fit in yet hiding their own challenges and secrets. While there are flashes of maturity In how the girls handle social sensitivities, it isn’t until an event occurs that you see the shift from children to adulthood. The performers are convincing as young girls however I found the scattered dialogue amongst soccer drills a struggle to sit through despite the snippets of humour, although it appeared others in the audience found it more entertaining.
The Wolves is playing at Pacific Theatre until 10 November 2018.
