“Pooka is a wonderful story about a fun shape-shifting creature,” Elizabeth A. Earle, artistic director of Wordsmyth Theater Company, tells us. “It’s not a children’s tale — it’s very dark. But it’s also very imaginative — I think one of my favorite parts is when the Pooka turns himself into the bacteria that cause acne.” A talented playwright, McLindon has had work produced by six theaters. A previous play of his, Good, was the winner of the 2013 John Gassner Playwriting Award.
