Media

“Sarah Middleton’s script is both light and sincere, comic and dramatic.” – Everything Theatre

“An hour of exhilarating drama with a smidgen of silliness.” – Broadway World

SHEWOLVES shows all the promise and potential of an engaging, youth-centric, politically relevant play with equally great writing, direction, and company.” – Broadway World

“Sparky and delightful.” – The Stage

“Badass comedy.” – Theatre Weekly

“[It] cleverly captures the sheer effervescence of teenage girls – their bubbly natures which often hide their darker insecurities and fears. It offers an enjoyable hour of, perhaps, something we might term as a new genre of theatre: Fizzertainment.” – LondonTheatre1
