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 in her big pink box. Nothing is sacred in this raucous assault on the power of language.
Cast Size: 8-17 (depends on doubling)
Running Time: 90-120 minutes

"Oh no, that would be explicit and inappropriate, and my federal funding prevents me from doing anything that might be educational or helpful to you later in life. But if you'd like a sandwich. Or a copy of the New Testament?"
