Puff: Believe It Or Not

By Eugène Scribe
Translated by Ranjit Bolt
Directed by Nick Sandys
November 22, 2017 – Jan. 7, 2018

An honorable and romantic cavalry officer returns to the salon society of 1840’s Paris to find his countrymen addicted to exaggeration, dissimulation, fakery, and just downright lying. French master Eugène Scribe’s forgotten gem, in a brilliant new translation by Ranjit Bolt, is packed full of elegant plotting, quirky characters, and sharply barbed wit, delightfully skewering the worlds of letters, politics, and finance.
