There is something both delicious and humbling about this splendid production of Sarah DeLappe's The Wolves at Lincoln Center. The Playwrights Realm has nurtured this play into a delicate yet blunt portrait of young women who are learning the game of relationships - and doing it on their own. And it has landed with a glorious explosion at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. The Wolves is a portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.
