SHEWOLVES is a funny, uplifting and empowering play about the power of sisterhood and the underestimated smartness of teens.

Armed with a backpack full of Pop-tarts and a hunger to tackle climate change, 14-year-olds Priya and Lou embark on a covert expedition into the wild. But as the wilderness closes in around them, can the teenagers overcome their differences to make their voices heard?

The play, which was composed by writer/actor Sarah Middleton from Derby will be presented at Derby Theatre on May 10 with performances at 1.30pm and 7.30pm.
