This Pulitzer Prize-nominated play revolves around the overlapping exchanges of a group of high school juniors during the pre-match warmup for their latest soccer game... The routine banter of girls confronting social pressures and existential conundrums while their minds and bodies transition into adulthood. Delappe reveals universal tragicomic truths in ordinary jock-girl existence.
