1980s, America. Teenage Maxine has teenage problems. There’s moving from the Rural Southern states to Urban Los Angeles with her booze-sodden Dad, there’s high school, boys, drugs, murder, Nicaraguan Contras, CIA, the LA uprising, the Northridge Earthquake... Not for the faint-hearted or Ronald Reagan. Blazing through a turbulent coming of age, and now trapped in a country sick with injustice, Maxine's eyes are yellow, her hands are claws and she has a howl desperate for release…

Blending poetic beauty with brutal honesty, Wolf Cub is a visceral odyssey written and directed by Ché Walker, performed by Clare Latham.

Ché Walker makes his Hampstead debut. Previous writing credits include The Frontline and The Lightning Child (both Shakespeare’s Globe), Fleshwound (Royal Court) and Been So Long (Netflix). Previous directing credits include Been So Long (Young Vic), Klook’s Last Stand (Park Theatre), The Glory of Living (Battersea Arts) and Macbeth (Southwark Playhouse).

Clare Latham performs in her first Hampstead production. Previous credits include Fairview (Soho Rep/Theatre For A New Audience, Off Broadway), Danny and the Deep Blue Sea and A Parable (both Southwark Playhouse), plus Blue Surge and Don’t Smoke In Bed (both Finborough). Television work includes Mr Robot and Suspicion.
