"Wolf Play" script

What if I said I am not what you think you see?

A southpaw boxer is on the verge of their pro debut when their wife signs the adoption papers for a Korean boy. The boy's original adoptive father was all set to hand him over to a new home… until he realizes the boy would have no “dad.” Caught in the middle, the child launches himself in a lone wolf's journey of finding a pack he can call his own.

Wolf Play is a mischievous and affecting new play about the families we choose and unchoose. It is published in Methuen Drama's Lost Plays series, celebrating new plays that had productions postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the global shutdown of theatre spaces.
