about harry potter and the cursed child
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series and the first to have been presented as theatre. Some 19 years after Voldemorts defeat, Harry Potter is now Head of Magical Law Enforcement, married and with children. Whilst grappling with the past, Albus, his youngest son must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As the past and the present come together, both the father and the son learn that sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places.
Because of the length of the Harry Potter story, it could not fit into one performance. Therefore there are two parts to the play. The play has been designed so that on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays it is possible to see part 1 in the afternoon and part 2 in the evening. Alternatively, part 1 and part 2 can be viewed on different days.
