As a coordinated attack on transgender youth escalates across the country, Actors Theatre of Louisville and casting director/producer Charlie Hano are partnering on an all-trans/gender non-conforming reading of Sarah DeLappe’s The Wolves, about an indoor soccer team navigating adolescence as they go through their daily warmups. Amid passing drills and stretching routines, a portrait emerges of nine teenage athletes actively figuring out their roles in the changing world around them.
The Wolves reading is directed by Regina Victor and all proceeds exceeding costs will go directly to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Kentucky for their advocacy and support of trans rights.
Anyone who donates at least $10 will receive a personal link to a recording of the event, available to watch through July 2 11:59 p.m. EDT.
