“Dig This: Close up on Pookie. She Is 14. She Is Awesome.”
Pookie Goes Grenading by JC Lee follows 14-year-old weirdo Pookie as she stops at nothing to put on her play—proving great art doesn’t come at a finite price. She gathers a rag-tag group of losers, including her high school counselor, to assist her. They laugh, they cry, they throw grenades. They learn to love. Cuz you can’t make art without he(art). Or fire.
“Are you ready to get sticky, New Jersey(Marquette)? Cause whether you like it or not, there’s a big fat load heading your way. See you onstage.”
