First Presbyterian Theater to present 'The Wolves'

An all-female local cast portrays nine members of a soccer team and “Soccer Mom” in “The Wolves” at First Presbyterian Theater.

First Presbyterian Theater will present nine young women as a socially conscious soccer team in Sarah DeLappe’s Pulitzer Prize finalist, coming-of-age play, “The Wolves,” directed by Shelby Lewis.

Making its Fort Wayne debut, “The Wolves” will be showing at the First Presbyterian Church Theater, 300 W. Wayne St., on Sept.17, 18, 24 and 25 at 7 p.m.; and Sept. 19 and 26 at 2 p.m.

Recommended for ages 13+, “The Wolves” contains mature language and explores sensitive topics.

Tickets are $16 for adults, $8 for children and students with ID, and $50 for a 4-ticket flex pass. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at firstpresfortwayne.org/theater, in person at Community Box Office in the Arts United Center at 303 E.

Featuring an all-female cast, director, stage manager, and production crew, First Presbyterian Church has partnered with the Women’s Fund of Greater Fort Wayne to help empower even more women of all ages. A Q&A panel, with both representatives from the Women’s Fund and members of the cast, will be hosted immediately after both Saturday shows.
