The wait is over! See the world's favourite wizard as he embarks on a new adventure in the highly anticipated Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Part One and Part Two at the Palace Theatre in London's West End.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne.
Following J.K. Rowling's seven bestselling Harry Potter novels and eight blockbuster films, created at the Warner Bros. Studios, Harry Potter will return in 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.
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 (played by Jamie Parker - Guys and Dolls, High Society) 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.
Paul Thornley (London Road) and Norma Dumezweni (Linda) join the cast as Ron and Hermione as the three best friends are reunited on the London stage.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be directed by John Tiffany with movement by Steven Hoggett, set designs by Christine Jones, costumes by Katrina Lindsay, and music by Imogen Heap. Production is by Sonia Friedman Productions (Book of Mormon, Funny Girl, Sunny Afternoon), Colin Callender‘s Playground Entertainment and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions.
The play is set into two parts. It is suggested that Part I and Part II are seen consecutively on the same day (matinee and evening performance) or over two evenings.
