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. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.
By Oregon Arts Watch:
"A 2017 Pulitzer Prize finalist, Sarah DeLappe’s play about a girls soccer team paints, as The Economist put it, “an absorbing portrait of female adolescence.” Director Jessica Wallenfels is an ideal choice to bring out both the emotional and choreographic nuances of the premise."
