ABOUT THE PLAY AND THE PRODUCTION

A haunting and provocative psychological mystery of adaptation and survival. The universe is vast, but 15-year-old Theresa seeks to understand how and why it came to be. Her only point of reference is a man named Mr. Wolf - a man who abducted her at the age of three, believed her to be a prophet, and engineered a life in which he controlled the entirety of her knowledge and experience. But with the center of that universe gone, with Teresa back with an estranged family attempting to reconnect and heal, how can she find her place in the world?

Mr. Wolf will be a workshop production, directed by Adam Riegler '20. Subject to pending licensing approval, performances will be in the Bentley Theater Friday March 1 @ 8:00 pm and Saturday March 2 @ 3:00 pm. 

Students are encouraged to read the script prior to auditions! Email Milena Zuccotti asap to receive a script for reading.

Michael: M, 30s 
An adult man and Theresa’s father, who has been searching for his missing daughter for twelve years, and who doesn’t know quite what to do when she is returned to him. He became a grief counselor for parents of kidnapped children and wrote a book to help himself and others cope with their awful situation. Through this venture he meets Julie who he marries after he is divorced by Theresa’s mother, Hana. Michael is a good father who is dumbstruck when he realizes that he does not know how to help his daughter re-acclimate to society, and can’t achieve normalcy for himself. PDF iconAudition side: Michael

Julie: F, 30s
She is another parent who is struggling with the loss of a missing child and who has sought help through Michael’s grief counseling. Now married to Michael, she is on the front lines for Theresa’s return. This event puts her in a strange position as she is happy for Michael, but it is clear that she is not Theresa’s mother, and the entire situation makes her wonder what has befallen her own daughter and she begins to question whether she will ever be returned to her. PDF iconAudition side: Julie

Hana: F, 30s
She is Michael’s ex-wife and Theresa’s mother. Hana could not handle the emotional stress of her daughter’s kidnapping. She divorced Michael and moved away.

Mr. Wolf: M, 20s-30s
He is the mysterious astronomy professor who kidnapped Theresa when she was a child. He viewed her as a prophet and educated her as such.
