The Wolves (until Nov 10)

Your best bet on Vancouver stages right now is the With A Spoon/Rumble Theatre production of Sarah DeLappe’s The Wolves. On stage now at Pacific Theatre, it not only “packs a punch“, it is a smart and satisfying work from a group of up-and-coming emerging female artists.  More information at pacifictheatre.org.
