Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
The eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.
ABOUT THE SHOW
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. 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.
- The play is based on an original new Harry Potter story by Jack Thorne, J. K. Rowling and John Tiffany. The rehearsal script was published before the show’s first performance.
- The play is presented in two parts performed in repertory. Its story begins 19 years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
