Poona the Fuckdog and other plays for children!!
5/6/99 - 7/17/99
These outrageous "Fairy tales for Grown-ups" are not for the easily offended! Poona, our ingenuous heroine, meets up with aliens, talking shrubs, and mealy mouthed salesmen in her quest to find someone to play with. Nothing is sacred in this raucous assault on the power of language.
