The Horizon Theater is known for producing plays that cause its audiences to think on a deeper level. We interact with the characters when we least expect it, and we often times are unsure of how we feel when we leave. The latest play The Wolves is no different.
After experiencing Project Dawn, back in 2017, it was the first time I felt connected to theatre. I try to keep an open mind and keep the blog very open and transparent at all times. I have to be honest with you, The Wolves once again got me in the gut.
So let’s examine this show
First, the physical endurance these young women have during this show is out of this world crazy. Like they are doing full on warm-up sessions as we take this journey over multiple weeks with them. It’s a high energy show that crazy intense. But in this show, the level of physical activity these young ladies have will drive the intense moments, as opposed to the crescendo of an orchestra.
The playwright was spot on with comical moments. Like there is not one woman in the audience that won’t relate to the period jokes and not one man who won’t walk away learning something new about women.
This show pulls you in from the very beginning. It’s like a bear hug, one shared between old friends, shared between new friends, shared just because, and shared when you really need it. The emotional journey we take within the 2 hours of watching this show runs the gamut of emotions. Will you cry? Maybe. Will you relate? Probably. Will you wonder how these brilliant actresses do this show night after night? Absolutely.
The Horizon once again does not disappoint.
