First Act: ‘Wolfcrush’ explores adolescent struggles as four teenagers wrestle with sexuality, identity and social standing

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - As a result of serendipitous scheduling, opening weekend for a LGBTQIA horror fairy tale corresponds with Port City Pride festivities.

Wolfcrush: A Queer Werewolf Play follows the story of adolescent struggles as four teenagers wrestle with sexuality, identity and social standing in a small town in Virginia, all while a vicious monster is on the loose.

Pineapple-Shaped Lamps presents the performances with support from Techmoja.

A press release from the group calls the show “the angsty lovechild of Spring Awakening, Riverdale, and deliciously campy grindhouse flicks.”

The show runs Aug. 29 to Sept. 1 and Sept. 5 to 8 at the Ruth & Bucky Stein Theatre inside Thalian Hall.

Tickets are available now at Thalianhall.org.
