Short review: The Wolves

Rated 4.0

The Wolves captures the dreams and dramas of a teen girls’ soccer team, no holds barred. All the action takes place during a series of indoor soccer match warmups complete with physical drills. The language and subject matters are a bit jarring at first, but truly captures the confusing and exhilarating time of life when teens are exploring their boundaries, their limits, their outside world and inner conflicts. This is stellar cast of nine talented young actors, each displaying their distinct personality as well as coordinated teamwork. Thu 7pm, Fri 8pm, Sat 2pm & 8pm, Sun 2pm. Through 9/30; $25-$40; Capital Stage, 2215 J St.; (916) 995-5464;
