Primarily based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, a brand new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play received its world premiere in London’s West End on 30th July, 2016. It was a resounding success.
It was always tough being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he’s an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age kids.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must wrestle with the burden of a family legacy he never wished for. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from surprising places.”

Praise for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts I and II: “Harry Potter fans can breathe easy knowing this play has been respectfully and lovingly wrought. Tensions thrum, spells fly… but at center stage, as always in the Potter verse, is the overriding importance of friendship and love, especially in the face of danger.” – Booklist
