The Wolves

A Maggie Tree production in association with The Citadel Theatre

October 8 - 30, 2022

Saturday mornings at the soccer dome give us a glimpse into the life of nine teenage girls. Navigating their worlds with the pressures of growing up surrounding them. A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, The Wolves, follows the young women as they come together to prepare for their highly competitive games, as well as for the ever-nearing threshold into the uncharted territory of adulthood.

The Art Gallery of Alberta respectfully acknowledges that we are located in Treaty 6 Territory, the traditional land of diverse Indigenous Peoples including the Plains Cree, Woodland Cree, Beaver Cree, Nitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Anishinaabe/Saulteaux/Ojibwe and Dene Peoples. We also acknowledge the many Indigenous, Inuit and Métis people who make Alberta their home today.
