Since SLAC has the reputation of producing plays of high quality with integrity for a loyal, open and adventurous audience, we get the rights to plays that took New York City by storm such as HAND TO GOD, FUN HOME and now THE WOLVES. In sharing the excitement of this 2017 Pulitzer Prize finalist. We asked the cast: “What makes you a wolf?” “As Mia Hamm once said, ‘My coach said I run like a girl, and I said if he ran a little faster he could too.’ I am a wolf because I am a GIRL who chooses to play with the strength and confidence of a wolf pack.” ~Alison Stroud “The thing that makes me a wolf is my belief in a pack. I believe that we all need our own ‘pack’ to survive in this world - individuals who will back us up when we need and who we can, in turn, protect.” ~Madi Cooper “Having a powerful intuition and being really ferocious when it comes to protecting my loved ones. I’m loyal to our pack and I’ll defend it.” ~Louise Dapper “A lifetime of love.” ~Tracie Merrill “I am a wolf because I am light and dark, chaos and harmony and if I allow you in my pack my passion, my loyalty, my ferocity and my love will never let you down.” ~Mary Neville “The Wolf is an intellectual. The Wolf embodies intuition. The Wolf utilizes instinct. The Wolf relies on their pack, all are ruthless team players. The Wolf craves the kill. The Wolf lives to survive. The Wolf is brute strength. The Wolf is feared by man. I am a Wolf.” ~Ireland Nichols “I’m like a wolf because I have a pack mentality. I love working and being with others. I’m playful, not aggressive unless you mess with a member of my pack and I’m very strong. I am a wolf.” ~Hailee Olenberger “While I am cute, fun, and sweet with a loyalty to my pack, I have a strength that I am not afraid to let shine through. I am a fierce fighter with a heart and soul full of love and a desire to avoid conflict and protect others.” ~Fina Posselli “I am a wolf because being on a team means putting fiery passion on the field or on the stage. We work to make something beautiful whether that’s a play about women who aren’t props in a man’s story. Or we work hard to make a beautiful game, to get that bicycle kick, to beat the odds and achieve the impossible. I am a wolf and I am also a part of the pack.” ~Cezanne Smith “This cast is a pack of fiercely loyal, deeply intuitive and intelligent women and as a company we can confidently chant ‘We are the Wolves!’” ~McKenzie Steele Foster Thank you for being here and cheers to all our inner wolves! With gratitude, Cynthia Executive Artistic Director

NOTES FROM THE DIRECTOR

ALEXANDRA HARBOLD

THE WOLVES’ playwright Sarah DeLappe speaks of her hope that we wonder “who each of these girls are as they slowly reveal themselves over the course of the play,” and as we have practiced on the field and rehearsed together, I keep thinking of Virginia Woolf’s journal entry: “I should say a good deal about The Hours, and my discovery: how I dig out beautiful caves behind my characters: I think that gives exactly what I want; humanity, humor, depth.  The idea is that the caves shall connect and each come to daylight at the present moment.” The Wolves feels like a warren of these caves running just under the surface, forcing up the earth as they cross into and around one another. One of the many reasons I love Sarah’s play is that it subverts the idea of a single protagonist, a single hero’s journey. Perhaps it’s because we’ve been talking about high school together, pouring our own stories, memories, bruises and victories into the caves of The Wolves, but the term bildungsroman has resurfaced from my (long-ago) high school English class. The German term names the literary genre focused on the psychological and spiritual growth of a young protagonist as they cross a threshold between childhood and adulthood. In The Wolves, Sarah DeLappe has written not one but rather of a pack’s interconnected rites of passage, failures and victories. When my godmother heard that I was directing The Wolves, she sent me Abby Wambach’s 2018 Commencement Remarks at Barnard College, which were inspired by her seeing a production of Sarah DeLappe’s play. In her remarks, Wambach proffers four rules that she has used to unify and lead her own pack: Rule One: MAKE FAILURE YOUR FUEL (Wolf Pack: Fail up. Blow it, and win.) Rule Two: LEAD FROM THE BENCH (Wolf Pack: Wherever you’re put, lead from there.) Rule Three: CHAMPION EACH OTHER (Wolf Pack: Her Victory is your Victory. Celebrate it.) Rule Four: DEMAND THE BALL It has been an unbelievable privilege and gift to work with this company on The Wolves and to tunnel into all the caves where Sarah asked us to dig. I am awed by each of these women – their ferocity, strength, and generosity as they have invested in the play and one another. They are the Wolves. Ever thanks to Salt Lake Acting Company, Joe, the Wolves’ pack and Creative Team. Alexandra Harbold

& SOCCER CONSULTANT

JOE MURRAY

Sir Alex Ferguson, famous ex-coach of Manchester United, was once asked to explain the amazing free-kick taking prowess of star player, Cristiano Ronaldo. “There’s no secret. The important thing is practice. It makes perfect as I was taught in school. The boy practices every day, that’s the reason he’s so good. We go for a cup of tea and leave him to it”. The Wolves do not need to be at Ronaldo’s level for this play, but the point is that even the greatest talents need to work on fine tuning their skills. As with acting, repetition and practice are critical. Prior to formal rehearsals, we held soccer practice every Saturday from 9-10am for 9 weeks. The soccer-playing experience of the cast members is varied: some having played competitively in high school, others having played until middle or elementary school, and one or two that had never played soccer, but have alternative sporting backgrounds. The goal of the practice sessions was to allow them to discover or re-discover soccer skills, focusing a lot on the basics of controlling and passing a ball. Their growing confidence on the field week-over-week was obvious and a joy to behold. A coach of mine once said that “football (soccer) is a simple game, complicated by fools”. With that in mind, I tried to replicate a real-life soccer practice in the sessions: warm-up, stretching, some passing drills, shooting, and finally (and the most fun) a game. While much of what the team (cast) has worked on in practice may not be applicable to their stage performance, I believe that working on all aspects of the game will ultimately benefit the play. I also believe that their instinctive team dynamic has been very important to their process as a cast. I conclude with my player bios for The Wolves SC:

when on the ball. She may be the skinny one, but don’t mess with this Muay-Thai specialist. Mary (#7): Sporting natural, putting her basketball nous to good use on the soccer field. Penalty kick specialist. Desperately tried, but failed ultimately, to suppress her use of choice language. Cezanne (#8): Bouncy goal-poacher, always in the right place at the right time…even if her character is a defender. McKenzie (#11): McFlicky. Never saw a flick that she couldn’t resist. Eye for the spectacular…and missing a wide open goal. Vocal…in ways that earn yellow cards. Hailee (#13): Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Also fond of a flick or three. That said, a hard-nosed defender at heart…don’t mess with her. Louise (#14): Brazilian…need I say more. Very fond of the move made famous by the Dutch master, one Johan Cruyff. Madi (#25): Captain Fantastic, leads by example, even if she was the first to receive a yellow card in practice (see #7 and #11 – actors have a way with “language”). Alison (#46): If she wasn’t focused on her acting, she could be playing college-level soccer without a doubt. Great ball-handling skills and a wicked shot (in other words, get out of the way).

Ireland (#00): Great outfield skills for a goalie. Her catlike instincts come from many hours playing Ultimate Frisbee. Fina (#2): Fast uber-flexible defensive stalwart, never giving you a moment’s piece

NOTES FROM DRAMATURG

CATHERINE HEINER

“This is the story of how I never stopped running. This is the story of how, when the wolves knocked, I met them at the door and I became the beast, instead.” –Ashe Vernon When considering coming of age stories for girls, titles like Mean Girls, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, or even A Cinderella Story may come to mind. The narratives share a similar understanding of the teenage girl experience, including a network of close friends, the struggle to adhere to societal norms, and ultimately, a happy ending. While these stories do not appear particularly insidious, they often play off of the negative stereotypes of female relationships—including the constant desire for romantic relationships, the negativity and alienation of girl groups, and dramatic and manipulative behavior. With these kind of examples, how do teenage girls understand themselves within the context of their communities? Sarah DeLappe’s dramatization of a girls’ indoor soccer team preparing for competition originally premiered in New York in 2016. At first glance, The Wolves may appear as a similar take on the female coming of age story. However, this is a world dictated and organized by the girls themselves. DeLappe described the setting as “the only place where they are athletes, first and foremost. I was interested in creating a world where teenage girls could define themselves, as opposed to being defined by parents or boyfriends or the male gaze.” The Wolves asks audiences what it means to grow up as a teenage girl. The team is a community within itself—a place for each individual to explore her own identity and

THE WOLVES

attempt to understand how they fit within a wider context. DeLappe’s work requires attention to detail, a searching for hints that reveal each character’s individual experience and perspective so that each facet is slowly revealed to the audience as the play progresses. Structurally the play allows for a constellation of stories, emphasizing the “choose-your-own-adventure” aspect DeLappe has created, playing on the musicality in what she describes as “an orchestration for nine voices, each representing one of the girls.” In what has been termed “a pulsating portrait,” a “firecracker,” and “a dizzying whirl of attitude, anxiety, and adolescent hormonal volatility,” The Wolves uses the smallest and even the most ordinary conversation to magnify the lives within the team. It offers sympathy without pity and recognition without judgment, with teenage girls seen as “complicated, nuanced, very idiosyncratic people […] who were athletes and daughters and students and scholars and people who were trying actively to figure out who they were in this changing world around them.” The Wolves create bonds that bend, bind, and support—reminding us that teenage girls are more resilient than we often give them credit for.

After completing Honors BAs in Writing and Rhetoric and Theatre Studies at the University of Utah, she went on to receive her MA in Literary and Cultural Studies from Carnegie Mellon University this spring. This year she has presented research at the American Theatre in Higher Education Conference, the Comparative Drama Conference, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Theatre and Drama Graduate Student Conference. Her work in dramaturgy has included productions of AS YOU LIKE IT (University of Utah, Studio 115), AMERICAN IDIOT (University of Utah, Marriott Center for Dance), SELF DEFENSE, OR DEATH OF SOME SALESMEN (Univ. of Utah, Studio 115), and ECLIPSED (Univ. of Utah, Studio 115), which was honored at by the Region VIII Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in 2018. She has also received staged readings of her plays STUFFING SEASON and SHOTS FIRED (accepted thesis for the Honors College) through the University of Utah New Play Workshop, and her play IN SPITE OF OURSELVES was produced by Wit’s End Theatre Company at the Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival.

JOE MURRAY (Soccer Consultant) When

Joe heard that his wife, Andra, would be directing THE WOLVES, he was delighted to volunteer as soccer coach. Joe has been playing organized soccer since he was seven years old. He moved from Ireland to the US on a soccer scholarship, playing with the University of Illinois at Springfield. He has continued to play with club teams since college, and currently plays with Blak Pijeon FC in the O-40 and O-46 Utah Adult Soccer leagues. While

he has coached underage competitive and recreational soccer teams in his 20s, including a high school boys team in Illinois, THE WOLVES has been a different and unique coaching experience. He has thoroughly enjoyed working with this talented and enthusiastic cast. Go Wolves!

JUSTIN IVIE* (Stage Manager) is a proud

member of Actors’ Equity who is thrilled be a part of SLAC’s 48th season! This is Justin’s fifth time stage managing for SLAC (STREETLIGHT WOODPECKER, WINTER, HAND TO GOD, MERCURY) and SLAC audiences may recognize him from his acting work as Dev in STUPID F*CKING BIRD, Jones in TOO MUCH MEMORY, and a nine-time cast member of SATURDAY’S VOYEUR.

Justin also designs scenery, props and theatrical masks, writes an occasional play, and sometimes even plays his banjo (when he’s pretty sure no one is listening).

University Professional Theatre Program SLAC is delighted to partner with local universities to heighten theatre students’ educational experience by taking them out of the classroom and hiring them at a professional theatre. We were thrilled to provide seven students the opportunity to work on THE WOLVES as actors, on our technical team and as designers.

Alison Jo Stroud (#46) I have played competitive soccer since I was a little girl and I always thought I would continue through college. When I decided instead to pursue acting, I was upset because I couldn't follow both passions, and dedicate myself to both. It is still surreal that my first professional show is about an all-girls soccer team where I get to act and play soccer at the same time.

Cézanne Smith (#8) Having the opportunity to be acting at a professional level, while also continuing to learn about the theatrical world in a university has been a blast. I feel more prepared to be an actor by the educational hands-on experience of UPTP.

Fina Posselli (#2) This experience of working at SLAC means so much to me because I get the opportunity to apply what I’m learning every day in my classes for the Actor Training Program at the U of U which helps me get a deeper and richer education and training to be a performer. Ireland Nichols (#00) After landing THE WOLVES, I was given the amazing opportunity to extend my skill-set and use the knowledge I have gained from the Actor Training Program. I could not be more excited for my SLAC debut!

Louise Dapper (#14) Three years ago I was back in my home country dreaming of acting in a play abroad. Today I am living that dream. My heart is filled with gratitude and I cannot express how delighted I am to be a part of THE WOLVES and to work with SLAC.

Claudia Escobar (Sound Board Operator) Working at SLAC is such an amazing opportunity. I get to work and learn from many talented professions in an environment that promotes growth and progression. I’m excited to be a part of another great production!

Kate Hunter (Assistant Sound Design) I’m lucky to have this opportunity, as I feel I will learn so much about sound design for professional theatre. I hope to acquire skills that will make me a well-rounded and marketable designer.

Thank you to: The John & Marcia Price Family Foundation Terence Kearns Stephens Charitable Trust Anderson & Karrenberg Maschoff Brennan for their generous support of this program.

GREEN ROOM GALLERY Salt Lake Acting Company is elated to continue our partnership with Art Access during the run of THE WOLVES. The mission of Art Access is to build a diverse and inclusive arts community in Utah through creative opportunities for people with disabilities and other marginalized communities, and through public engagement in the arts. Through their various arts programs, such as professional development for artists with disabilities, Integrated Arts residencies in schools, and art therapy for survivors of sexual abuse, Art Access serves over 18,000 adults and children each year. Art Access works to build an inclusive and diverse arts community in Utah through arts programming and public engagement in the arts. For this show, we have invited high school student Rachel Villapando to curate an exhibit of artwork by her female peers at Granger High School. Villapando has this to say about her show: “Girls are the backbone of our world. We have risen through oppression and suppression and continue to bloom through our own forms of empowerment. These pieces show the shared brightness of our teen generation of girls from different backgrounds, experiences, and inspirations.”

Terence K. Stephens is a native of Utah. He graduated from the University of Utah in 1981 in Fine Arts. He then pursued an art career in Washington, D.C., Seattle and San Francisco where he did design work for high end retailers, had art exhibitions and painted murals. Several years ago Terence returned to Utah where he opened an art gallery, Art 270, in downtown Salt Lake City, from 2014-2017. He showcased a variety of local artists, lecturers, dancers, performers and taught art classes. He is now a regular citizen continuing to create art about nature, animals and people.
