Christmas is coming, but Poona the Fuckdog won't be after Dec. 23.
Poona the Fuckdog and Other Plays for Children, Jeff Goode's twisted take on fairy tales, closes at Boston's TheatreZone company Dec. 23. Performances began Dec. 1.
A parody of children's theatre, Poona follows the travels of the erstwhile heroine as Poona follows the desires of the Fairy God Phallus and meets up with a cast of strange friends and even stranger strangers, including Rabbit, Suzy-Suzy Cybersassin, Mr. Beer, a talking television that rules the Land of Do (where nobody did) and The Almighty God Himself.
Goode is also the author of The Eight: The Reindeer Monologues and Romeo and Julius [Cesear]: a New Play by William Shakespeare. Poona the Fuckdog was first produced by New York City's adobe theatre company in Nov.-Dec., 1999.
