iiiiiiin this corner, we have southpaw boxer Ash, who’s on the verge of her pro debut when her wife Robin adopts a Korean boy off the internet without technically checking in with Ash first. Aaaaaaaaand in this corner, we have the boy’s first pair of adoptive parents, who were all set to unadopt him until they realized he’d be growing up… without a dad. Now, the boy is caught in the middle, and just wants to find his wolfpack.

Hansol Jung’s WOLF PLAY is a deeply theatrical hunt for familial connection in the wilds of 21st century America.

“A play our clamorous world needs now.”

— Joyce Kulhawik

“Hansol Jung’s moving and inventively on-point play is directed by Summer L. Williams with her usual deft touch.”

— The Boston Globe
