What is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child about? 

The cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is on stage, wearing Hogwarts uniforms and holding hight the flags of the school's four houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.

19 years after Harry Potter and his two loyal friends Ron and Hermione saved the wizarding world from dark forces, they are back on a new adventure, this time joined by a new generation leading the charge at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Based on an original new story by JK RowlingJack Thorne and John Tiffany, the West End show follows Harry Potter (Sam Crane), as an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic grappling with his dark past, and his youngest son Albus (Thomas Grant), who struggles with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted.

Thomas Aldridge and Michelle Gayle join the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child cast as Ron and Hermione, reuniting the three best friends on the London stage.
