Tight passes. Soft touches. Hustle out there and mark your man. Every Saturday, nine teenage girls come together to train and play soccer. They’re high achievers and burnouts, insiders and outsiders, best friends and vicious bullies and – often – all of the above, all at once.

Bristling with confidence and ferocious energy, Sarah DeLappe’s barnstorming, Pulitzer Prize-nominated debut is a frank and hilarious portrait of nine young warriors – messy, mean and full of compassion – working out who they are and the battles they’ll have to fight.

For the first time in Silo’s history, the company casts a powerhouse ensemble of teenage performers.

Pulitzer Prize for Drama Finalist 2017

Contains some coarse language and adult themes. Suitable for ages 15 and over.

"This is one of the most striking playwriting debuts in recent memory, and absolutely not to be missed.”

The Hollywood Reporter

“DeLappe has crafted an extraordinary, dramatically gripping piece of writing that gives voice to a group of teenage girls in ways that we rarely hear on stage.”

Time Out Sydney

"A delicate, accomplished coming-of-age play that cleverly puts young female bodies centre stage without objectifying anyone."

Sunday Times
