“Puffs, or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic” by Matt Cox is a Potter-inspired comedy for anyone who has ever felt like a secondary character in someone else’s story. The play that “never goes more than a minute without a laugh” (Nerdist) gives you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three new heroes just trying to make it through magic school.
Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal rejects with a thing for badgers. Their humorous and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.
