Pookie Goes Grenading

Media Title

Azuka Theatre opens its season this week with JC Lee’s provocatively titled Pookie Goes Grenading.
The play focuses on an unlikely trio of high schoolers who arm themselves with an arsenal of weapons-grade explosives intent on making the most “epic play” in history. Originally crafted as a short work for a friend to use as an audition piece, the play parodies everything Lee views as being wrong with theater today. Set in the suburbs surrounding Camden, the characters include super-smart 14-year-old theatrical terrorist Pookie, teen techie Greta, and Benny, a savvy gay teenager who conquers the homophobic bullies to become the most popular student in the trio’s South Jersey school. -J.
