PFFFFFF is a dark farce that tells the story of the Dolphin submarine, floating somewhere in the depths of the Persian Gulf. Its commander has decided to take matters into his own hands and to once and for all bring peace to the Middle East. Meanwhile, Israel’s top politicians and security personnel gather in a desperate attempt to stop the imminent nuclear holocaust. But when it shows no signs of remorse all that’s left to do is prepare for the worst – and perhaps even fall in love with it.

Inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove” and Sidney Lumet’s “Fail Safe”.

Critics

Premiered at the Acre Festival for Alternative Theatre, Pfffffff won the festival's first prize. Introducing the event's final award, Yossi Sarid, chair of the Acre festival committee, described the show : "The play is dramatized and portrayed as a dark farce calling for complete freedom of the imagination. But on second thought and perhaps a third, it may be far more realistic than we suppose." Kaye, Helen (September 30, 2013). War and social media come out tops at Acre Festival 2013Jerusalem Post.
