PARAMUS, N.J. – In their first in-person production since COVID-19 forced them off stage, Bergen Community College’s Bergenstages theatre troupe will present “The Wolves,” a production by Sarah DeLappe and directed by Leigh Jonaitis, Ph.D., November 5, 6, 11, 12 and 13 at 7:30 p.m. and November 6 and 13 at 2 p.m. in the Anna Maria Ciccone Theatre at the Paramus campus (400 Paramus Road, Paramus, New Jersey).
As part of the Nov. 11 performance, Bergen Associate Professor of History and Coordinator of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program Christine Eubank, Ph.D., will moderate a talk-back discussion immediately after the final curtain with the director and cast. The Nov. 12 performance will include sign-interpretation for deaf or hard-of-hearing patrons. Visit tickets.bergen.edu or call the box office at (201) 447-7428 for seats.
The Wolves tells the story of a girls’ indoor soccer team from the safety of their suburban stretch circle. The girls’ indoor soccer team must navigate big questions and wage tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. The performance has PG-13 language.
