The wolves at boulder ensemble theatre company - DAIRY ARTS CENTER
Kate is playing #46 in the regional premiere of The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe with Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company at the Dairy Arts Center in Boulder, Colorado. The play is about a high school soccer team and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2017.
“When new girl No. 46 (Kate Parkin) arrives, she throws off the pack. Not just because she’s home- schooled and “needs a shower,” as one Wolf quips. No, the joke’s on them: She’s got skill. While there’s no “I” in team, as the cliché goes, there is one in scholarship.” -The Denver Post
“Why does number 46 live in a yurt — or a yogurt, as another girl calls it? And if she’s been to Cambodia, as she states, does that mean she has some specific knowledge of the country’s blood-soaked history? She seems to be poor. She’s new to the team, inexperienced at the game and takes three buses to get to practice. Another girl says she’s stinky. It turns out that her eccentric mother is a travel writer. What can we piece together out of these fragments?” -Denver Westword
