Goodman Theatre Announces Casting for Chicago Debut of The Wolves
The Goodman Theatre has announced casting for the Chicago premiere of Sarah DeLappe's The Wolves, directed by Vanessa Stalling. Performances will run from February 9-March 11, with an official opening set for February 20.
A 2017 Pulitzer Prize finalist, The Wolves follows a suburban girls soccer team as they navigate life's big questions and wage their own tiny battles. The cast features Angela Alise as #00, goalie; Isa Arciniegas as #25, captain; Taylor Blim as #2, defense; Natalie Joyce as #7, striker; Cydney Moody as #8, defense; Erin O’Shea as #46, bench; Sarah Price as #11, midfield; Aurora Real de Asua as #14, midfield; Mary Tilden as #13, midfield; and Meighan Gerachis as the Soccer Mom.
The creative team includes Collette Pollard (sets), Noël Huntzinger (costumes), Keith Parham (lights), Mikhail Fiksel (sound), and Nikki Blue (production stage manager).
The Wolves was originally produced by Playwrights Realm in association with New York Stage & Film and Vassar's Powerhouse Theater season. The play ran at the Duke on 42nd Street in September of 2016, followed by a return engagement at the Duke in November, earning a place as a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, an Obie Ensemble Award shared by director Lila Neugebauer and the acting ensemble, a special Drama Desk Award for its acting ensemble, and nominations for the Lucille Lortel and Drama League Award for Best Play. The Wolves also received an Outer Critics Circle John Gassner Award nomination for Outstanding New American Play. The play's latest off-Broadway mounting closed earlier this month at Lincoln Center Theater.
