Synopsis

A brand new addition to the world of Harry Potter, based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany.  The new play, 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 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.

J.K. Rowling is the author of the much-loved series of seven Harry Potter novels, originally published between 1997 and 2007. Along with the three companion books written for charity, the series has sold over 500 million copies, been translated into over 80 languages, and made into eight blockbuster films. Originally written by J.K. Rowling in aid of Comic Relief as a Hogwarts textbook, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them became the inspiration behind a new and original five-film series for Warner Bros., the first of which was released in 2016. The second film in the series, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, was released in November 2018. J.K. Rowling has collaborated with playwright Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany on a stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which opened in London's West End in 2016 and on Broadway in 2018, and will have further worldwide openings in 2019. J.K. Rowling also writes the Cormoran Strike crime novels, under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. The fourth in this series was published in autumn 2018. The Strike books have been adapted for television for BBC and HBO television by Bronte Film & Television. J.K. Rowling is also the author of The Casual Vacancy, a standalone novel for adults, published in 2012. John Tiffany directed Once, for which he was the recipient of multiple awards both in the West End and on Broadway. As Associate Director of the Royal Court, his work includes The Twits, Hope and The Pass.

His theatre credits include Hope and Let the Right One In, both directed by John Tiffany, The Solid Life of Sugar Water for the Graeae Theatre Company and the National Theatre, Bunny for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Stacy for the Trafalgar Studios, and 2nd May 1997 and When You Cure Me for the Bush.

Customer Reviews

I was rather disappointed by Rowling's latest instalment of the much beloved Harry Potter universe. Most of what I loved in the original series is gone: atmostphere and character development. My view must be biaised since this is only a script and not a fiction but I can't help thinking that publishing the play as a literary 'event' has misled readers into thinking they were going to go back to Poudlard. Only get it if you can't see the play or are too eager to complete your collection.

Just finished "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child". I wasn't sure about how I'd feel reading a script, not a book, before I started. It's certainly not as immersive as the books (the speech is good and the stage directions as good as they could be but I missed Rowling's prose. That said the story is wonderful and certainly worth reading. The live performance of it is likely to be AWESOME. I can't say much more without spilling beans. Many beloved established characters and some well-constructed new ones. I laughed out loud a few times and I blubbed at least twice!
