Puffs the play

We went to the off-broadway production of Puffs, or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic.

The play is based on the Harry Potter books, but does so from the point of view of students in Hufflepuff House. Hufflepuffs are portrayed as well-meaning, trustworthy, hardworking, inconsequential rejects throughout the original book series. Seeing all the epic drama & important happenings through the eyes of Puffs was absolutely priceless!

The production value of the play is practically non-existent, the play was originally funded by a $2500 Kickstarter program, but the script and the cast were amazing! If you’re a fan of the Harry Potter series, we highly recommend seeing the ‘filmed live’ version of the play:

Here are a few pics of the stage and theater decorations …

Edward Gorey House

In 1979 the artist Edward Gorey purchased a 200 year old sea captain’s home along the town common of Yarmouth Port in Cape Cod. After his death in 2000 the house became a museum dedicated to his work, his many collections of random artifacts and his devotion to animal welfare. The museum is a nonprofit that raises money not just to run itself, but also to support the many animal welfare organizations that Edward Gorey provided for in his will and expressed fondness for during his lifetime.

The specific exhibits in the museum change each year, but many of Gorey’s collected artifacts are on display in every nook and cranny of the house, as well as on the grounds outside. Many of his most popular characters are portrayed variously about, too.
