The Wolf at the End of the Block
Chicago. Fall. One night, a boarded up bar on the dark side of the block becomes a terrifying crime scene. In the next 48 hours, the neighborhood digs deep into escalating mystery, working against time to separate fact from fiction. But as the clock ticks down, the clues spiral into a razor sharp jigsaw, and what began as a simple mystery quickly twists into a personal, pointed and political thriller. By one of Chicago’s most exciting playwrights, WOLF comes to 16th Street after its thrilling world premiere at Teatro Vista.
This is part of 100 Club and 3-play Subscription Series 2018.
Running time is 90 minutes. No intermission.
THESE ARE REVIEWS FROM TEATRO VISTA’S 2017 PRODUCTION. ‘WOLF’ is COMING TO 16TH STREET IN A NEW PRODUCTION BEGINNING MARCH 29, 2018!
Ike Holter was named Chicagoan of the Year in Theater by Chicago Tribune in 2014
“3 Stars! Many Chicagoans of color report feeling uneasy around Chicago police officers. That is a fact, supported by ample data. There’s also hard evidence that white Chicagoans do not fully understand the hows and the whys of those feelings about the police — not least because they cannot and do not walk in those shoes around our beloved but difficult city. Ike Holter’s new play The Wolf at the End of the Block, is as clear, impassioned, blistering and heartfelt an explanation of that how and why as you could ever hope to see.” – Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
“Highly Recommended…The Wolf at the End of the Block is Ike Holter’s most urgent work to date and his most affecting since Exit Strategy. It is a play that deserves to be seen, engaged and grappled with. To call it ‘timely’ would be a disservice as the themes and subjects herein are nothing new. It’s just that they are rarely spoken as honestly or as poignantly as they are here.” – Kevin Greene, New City
“The Wolf at the End of the Block is an insightful, engrossing drama rich with truth and relevance.” – Brent Ervin-Eickhoff, Picture this Post
