<p><b>The official playscript of the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.</b></p><p>It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.</p><p>While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.</p><p>The playscript for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was originally released as a 'special rehearsal edition' alongside the opening of Jack Thorne's play in London's West End in summer 2016. Based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, the play opened to rapturous reviews from theatregoers and critics alike, while the official playscript became an immediate global bestseller.</p><p>This definitive and final playscript updates the 'special rehearsal edition' with the conclusive and final dialogue from the play, which has subtly changed since its rehearsals, as well as a conversation piece between director John Tiffany and writer Jack Thorne, who share stories and insights about reading playscripts. This edition also includes useful background information including the Potter family tree and a timeline of events from the Wizarding World prior to the beginning of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.</p>

<DIV><B>The collected dramatic works of the Nobel Prize winner, from <I>Murder in the Cathedral</I> to <I>The Elder Statesman</I>.</B><BR />  <BR /> T. S. Eliot’s plays—<I>Murder in the Cathedral</I>,<I> The Family Reunion</I>,<I> The Cocktail Party </I>(which won a Tony Award for its Broadway production),<I> The Confidential Clerk</I>, and <I>The Elder Statesman</I>—are brought together for the first time in this volume. They summarize the Nobel Prize winner’s achievements in restoring dramatic verse to the English and American stages, an effort of great significance both for the theater and for the development of Eliot’s art.<BR />  <BR /> Between 1935, when <I>Murder in the Cathedral</I> was first produced at the Canterbury Festival, and 1958, when <I>The Elder Statesman</I> opened at the Edinburgh Festival prior to engagements in London and New York, Eliot had given three other plays to the theater. His paramount concerns can be traced through all five works. They have been said to be closely related, marking stages in the development of a new and individual form of drama, in which the poet worked out his intention “to take a form of entertainment, and subject it to the process that would leave it a form of art.” What Mark Van Doren said, in reviewing <I>Murder in the Cathedral</I>, is true of all these plays: “Mr. Eliot adapts himself to the stage with dignity, simplicity, and skill.”</DIV>
