In the off-Broadway play "Puffs," about Hufflepuff students and their inconsequential role in the greater Harry Potter story arc, year 6 includes an extremely protracted scene that mystified me. I've read all the HP books repeatedly and seen all the movies, but I cannot figure out where this scene is coming from.
The scene involves Zachary Smith running quidditch team tryouts for House Hufflepuff, and mostly comes down to him doing an AMA (Ask Me Anything. It's like opening the floor to questions) with the other students. It's probably the longest scene in the play, and although it was funny on its own, I can't figure out what it's parodying or how it relates to the actual Harry Potter storyline.
Any insight there?
