Raised By Wolves
…Watch your pack!
Los Angeles, CA, May 22, 2019. You learn to survive quick when you’re being dragged behind a team of sled dogs. A comedy about a girl and her dogsled team navigating the rocky terrain of growing up and her quest to become the alpha of her own pack. Raised By Wolves makes its World Premiere at the Hollywood Fringe Festival on June 9th at Stephanie Feury Studio Theatre, 5636 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90038.
Marla Black brings her real life childhood experience of growing up with a leadership coach Dad and fifteen sled dogs to the 2019 Hollywood Fringe Festival. Bringing the same raw honesty and quirky sensibility that has graced the stages of Upright Citizen’s Brigade and The Second City, Black asks the age-old question – can a natural born Omega can ever change her rank in the pack. Well… can they? She really wants to know.
