Inspired by Latino folklore, Wolf at the Door draws upon legend and mythology to tell an archetypal and magical story that navigates dangerous waters. It is about survival and the struggle to find the strength to achieve personal freedom by vanquishing a wolf in sheep’s clothing

Isadora, about to give birth to her first child, finds herself increasingly threatened by her once-charming husband. Only her loyal childhood nurse stands between her and his unpredictable outbursts. One night, an incident leads to the discovery of a strange young woman hiding in the barn. What is her purpose and why is there a pack of howling wolves lying in wait? 

Directed by Daniel Jáquez, Wolf at the Door stars Desiree Pinol, Oscar A. L. Cabrera, Alexandra Lemus and Liz Zazzi.

Due to the adult nature of the play, no one under 17 will be admitted.
