Harry Potter and the Midlife Crisis: Wizard revealed as overworked dad-of-three as part 8 of story hits stage.

July 7, 2011. It will see an adult Harry, an Auror working for the Ministry of Magic in early middle-age, “grapple with his past” in relation to his own son’s struggle with “a family legacy he never wanted – presumably Harry’s fame.Tagged as “The Eighth Story, Nineteen years later”, the West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be in two parts, says the author.British cultural figures and political heavyweights including writers JK Rowling and Hilary Mantel and Conservative MP Eric Pickles are leading the charge against an arts boycott of Israel over its treatment of Palestinians.

Therefore we are writing to declare our support for the launch and aims of Culture for Coexistence – an independent UK network representing a cross-section from the cultural world. The bestselling authors and fellow opponents of the embargo, including actress Zoe Wanamaker and historian Simon Schama, have signed an open letter published in the Guardian newspaper calling for dialogue to resolve the conflict and rejecting the need for a boycott of cultural institutions. Both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.” The two parts are meant to be seen in order on the same day, or two consecutive evenings. Official artwork from the production was unveiled last night showing Harry or Albus Severus sitting in a bird’s nest with wings which resembles a Snitch. While we may not all share the same views on the policies of the Israeli government, we all share a desire for peaceful coexistence.” Included among the supporters are a number of MPs, including Conservative Eric Pickles, a former frontbench minister and an outspoken supporter of Israel.

Open dialogue and interaction promote greater understanding and mutual acceptance, and it is through such understanding and acceptance that movement can be made towards a resolution of the conflict. The script is by Thorne, a stage and screen writer whose work includes vampire story “Let the Right One In.” The director is Tiffany, who helmed the critically lauded war play “Black Watch” and multiple Tony Award-winning musical “Once.” Tickets go on sale Wednesday to buyers who registered online and to the general public on Oct 30.

Ultimately we all believe in a two-state solution so that the national self-determination of both peoples is realised, with the state of Israel and a Palestinian state living side by side in peace and security. Fronted by musician Brian Eno and film director Ken loach, the earlier open letter argued that “since the summer war on Gaza, Palestinians have enjoyed no respite from Israel’s unrelenting attack on their land, their livelihood, their right to political existence.” “Israel’s wars are fought on the cultural front too. She has long insisted there will be no new Harry Potter novels, but she has kept fans happy with spin-off works including the magical encyclopedia “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” which is set to be a film starring Eddie Redmayne.

Its army targets Palestinian cultural institutions for attack, and prevents the free movement of cultural workers.” “We won’t play music, accept awards, attend exhibitions, festivals or conferences, run masterclasses or workshops, until Israel respects international law and ends its colonial oppression of the Palestinians,” the letter concluded. We wholly endorse encouraging such a powerful tool for change rather than boycotting its use. • The list of signatories on this letter was amended on 23 October 2015. Senior vice president of the Board of Deputies, a Jewish community group, Richard Verber told the Jewish Chronicle that “we have always argued that boycotts do nothing to encourage dialogue and peace in a complex and troubled region.”
