PCPA: The Wolves now playing - Free Performance of Oliver Button
March 7 - 24
A club soccer team comprised of nine high school girls with distinct personalities
navigate big questions and wage tiny battles
with the fervent exuberance of a pack of adolescent warriors
and show what it takes to make a team.
Director Karin Hendricks refers to The Wolves as an extraordinary piece of writing
about a group of teenage women whose voices and points of view often go disregarded.
“This is a kind of play my colleagues and I have never seen before,
which is one of the reasons why it is getting so much attention in the theatrical community.
It’s also a story that celebrates teenage women and focuses on their relationships
with each other as opposed to focusing on their relationships with men."
The young women are valued for their physical strength,
emotional strength, and their intellectual strength.

Oliver Button doesn't like sports. Oliver Button prefers to use his imagination
by dressing up in costumes, drawing pictures, and making science fiction movies in his attic.
But Oliver finds his true calling when he enrolls in a tap dancing class,
and it hurts his feelings when other boys make fun of him for being a dancer.
Oliver Button Is A Sissy is an inspiring story about a boy
who stands up to bullies by staying true to himself.
