Show Information



Writer Ross Willis

Director Izzy Rabey

Twin sisters separated at birth. One will live in the woods and be raised by a wolf. The other will discover science as her mother melts away in a bath. Will their paths cross again? Wolfie is part fairy tale, part chronicle of families ties lost through the care system.

About the project

Wolfie invites you on an adventure into the dark, magical and anarchic world of Ross Willis’s hilarious and heart-breaking play. The final Network Play Reading from National Theatre Wales and Sherman Theatre offers an opportunity to experience a contemporary drama classic, with sound design by rising star of the Welsh music scene Eadyth Crawford.
