The play explains how Peter, an orphan on a dangerous journey across the sea, becomes Peter Pan with the help of his friend Molly and his motley crew of other orphans who call themselves The Lost Boys. Their mission is to protect the “starstuff” which has been delivered to Earth by meteors and collected in a trunk. Along the way they meet pirates led by the worst of them all, “Black Stache,” mermaids, natives, and the hungriest crocodile in the world, Mr. Grin.

THE WOLVES are a semi-professional all girls soccer team comprised of girls from different schools and backgrounds who train and play together. Their Saturday morning warm-ups become gossip sessions, difficult conversations about what is going on in their personal worlds, their anxieties and humor, peppered with complaints about parents, boys and coaches. The audience watches them grow together and bond as a team against all odds and personal tragedies. THE WOLVES was a finalist for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for drama with the Committee stating that it “illuminates with the unmistakable ping of reality the way young selves are formed when innate character clashes with external challenges.”
