From the brilliant imagination of J.K Rowling in collaboration with Jack Thorne and John Tiffany comes the eighth story in the Harry Potter series that has now been adapted and is presented live on stage at the Palace Theatre in the West End. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a play that is set nineteen years after the previous novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and is presented in two parts but intended to be seen in the correct order either on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.
Now a father of three, Harry finds himself as a stressed out and overworked employee of the ‘Ministry of Magic’ who is struggling to come to terms with the outcome of past events while his youngest son Albus has difficulty understanding and embracing the family legacy, so when the present and the past suddenly collide Harry and Albus must work together to defeat the darkness that is thrust upon them.
Featuring an array of incredible special effects that magically bring Harry’s Wizardry to life, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a theatrical experience that is not to be missed and is one of the most sought-after and in-demand productions ever to grace the West End stage.
After opening in London in July 2016 the production has gone on to break all box office records and has won a record-breaking 9 separate Olivier awards from 11 nominations with productions also currently running on Broadway as well as in San Francisco and Melbourne with several others in the pipeline.
