<p><b>The official playscript of the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.</b><br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />The playscript for <i>Harry Potter and the Cursed Child </i>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.<br /><br />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 <i>Harry Potter and the Cursed Child</i>.</p>

As boys we are told to hold back our emotions. As men that gave us the emotional inarticulacy we are infamous for. I've chosen to show the world that emotions can be mastered through effort and self-expression. My name is Max Marvel and this is my story but, it's also yours as well. I've written this book for everyone that has felt like they couldn't find the words to express the emotions they feel. For those who remain silent instead of expressing themselves. With this book I promise to be the hero you need. The hero that will walk with you through this story and through life. Believe in me. Support me. Through this book and many others to come in the future. We will make it through this life together.<br /><br />With love,<br /><br />Max Marvel

鈥淎n Actor Prepares鈥?is a 1936 guide to acting by Konstantin Stanislavski. Konstantin Sergeievich Stanislavski (1863 鈥?1938) was an influential Russian theatre practitioner. He was himself a highly-esteemed character actor and directed many successful productions. However, he is most famous for his 'system' of learning to act, focusing on training, preparation, and technique. This was the first of Stanislavski's book on acting. Concentrating on preparation, it offers the aspiring actor or actress tips and instructions on how they should prepare for performances. This seminal volume constitutes a must-have for all with an interest in acting and the work of Stanislavski. Contents include: 鈥淭he First Test鈥? 鈥淲hen Acting Is An Art鈥? 鈥淎ction鈥? 鈥淚magination鈥? 鈥淐oncentration鈥? 鈥淥f Attention鈥? 鈥淩elaxation Of Muscles鈥? 鈥淯nits And Objectives鈥? 鈥淔aith And A Sense Of Truth鈥? 鈥淓motion Memory鈥? 鈥淐ommunion鈥? 鈥淎daptation鈥? 鈥淚nner Motive Forces鈥? 鈥淭he Unbroken Line鈥? 鈥淭he Inner Creative鈥? 鈥淪tate鈥? etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

<p>As portrayed in Homer's <i>Odyssey</i>, Penelope - wife of Odysseus and cousin of the beautiful Helen of Troy - has become a symbol of wifely duty and devotion, enduring twenty years of waiting when her husband goes to fight in the Trojan War. As she fends off the attentions of a hundred greedy suitors, travelling minstrels regale her with news of Odysseus' epic adventures around the Mediterranean - slaying monsters and grappling with amorous goddesses. When Odysseus finally comes home, he kills her suitors and then, in an act that served as little more than a footnote in Homer's original story, inexplicably hangs Penelope's twelve maids.</p><p>Now, Penelope and her chorus of wronged maids tell their side of the story in a new stage version by Margaret Atwood, adapted from her own wry, witty and wise novel.</p><p><i>The Penelopiad</i> premiered with the Royal Shakespeare Company in association with Canada's National Arts Centre at the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, in July 2007.</p>
