A Dark Fairytale presented at The Tank Theater NYC, Fall 2016

In Pooka, 12-year-old outcast Martin is terrorized by middle school bullies and his mother's ne'er-do-well boyfriend, with only his precocious best friend - and sometimes love interest - Daphne to confide in. When a mischievous shapeshifter promises to fix Martin's life, he soon realizes that no magic wish can remodel his fractured reality. Written by James McLindon, "Pooka" is a darkly whimsical and surprisingly comedic story of angst, frustration, and growing up.

Pooka was presented in October 2016 at The Tank Theater NYC; a limited engagement that was the end result of a new work development period. Playwright James McLindon submitted a draft of Pooka through our inaugural New Works Festival, launched early 2016. Details for the 2017 will be going live at the end of January 2017.
