This production offers an original and alternative story of the iconic filmmaker, although one that is not entirely convincing.

This Week London recently had a Q&A with the former Weasley about the show:
TW: How did you get involved with the project? Who else is involved?
JP: I have always wanted to do theatre, and a few weeks ago I was sent the script and asked if I would be interested. I loved the script and met with Adam Morley (director) and Geoff Morrow (Writer) and we hit it off right away. Three weeks later and it’s nearly opening night.
TW: Can you tell us an amusing Harry Potter anecdote? Or a dull one, we’re not fussy.The full interview can be read here and tickets are still available for tonight, Friday and Saturday here.
JP: We were in Orlando for the opening of the Wizarding World of HP at universal studios, and one evening Oliver (my brother) and Rupert Grint and I went out and ended up in a place called Rising Star (very cool karaoke place). We ended up doing a song and then found out the audience was full of Harry Potter fan-site people… perhaps unsurprisingly, we seemed to go down pretty well…!
