The Wolves…Frances Mcdormand would be proud

The Wolves is the new play at The Old Fitz produced by Red Line. It has a cast of nine talented actors, all female, a wonderful director Jessica Arthur and a very satisfying set, designed by Maya Kemp. Considering Frances’ call for more female employment across the spectrum of creative jobs in film/theatre, she would be delighted with this production, which is all female, but missing none of the muscle and energy that one might attribute to a male creative team.

This play is about female adolescence in middle America and covers a myriad of issues spoken with voices from a variety of cultural and socio economic backgrounds. It is honest and raw and very entertaining. There is alot of choreography which works particularly well and gives the piece tremendous energy. The direction is faultless. This cast has no weakest links, but I have to mention Zoe Terakes, whom I have seen in three plays over six months, including her award winning performance in View From The Bridge. It is hard to believe that such a young actor can be so accomplished.  She has very few words in this play but her character is captured beautifully. Her facial movements are astonishing.

So get tickets if you can.. The Old Fitz has served such an amazing series of winners that tickets are impossible to purchase once the season takes off!!
