   Thorne and Tiffany describe working with Rowling0 Comments

With a day to go before the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child pre-release tickets, Pottermore has released an editorial describing how director John Tiffany and writer Jack Thorne have collaborated creatively with J. K. Rowling.

John Tiffany:

  Accio Quote:
‘I’d asked both sets of kids in my life, my three nephews and my godchildren, whether I should do this show. They’d all gone through Harry Potter and they all said “We’ll kill you if you don’t”’. So the journey began.

  Accio Quote:
‘Oh, stop it,’ John says and turns to me. ‘We went to Edinburgh to Jo’s house – Jack and I. Then I sort of watched the love affair begin. You know, it’s like taking your best friend to meet your new partner and then realising... Well, it was two writers meeting, you don’t get a look in.’

Jack Thorne:

  Accio Quote:
‘I’d read all the books in my twenties and I’d go to the cinema and watch all the films by myself. I was deeply in love with Potter already, so the chance to do this...’ says Jack, like he still can’t believe J.K. Rowling has given him characters from those books and films to write onto the stage.

  Accio Quote:
‘We started talking about ideas and her generosity in the way she listened to what was inside our heads, and then fed into that with her brilliant mind, was incredible. You were very clear back then, John, that you didn’t want to do something historical.’
