Book your tickets to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a two part play based on the novel by J.K Rowling. Written by Jack Thorne, it brings the eighth novel in the Harry Potter series to life, on stage. The story takes place 19 years after Voldemorts defeat in Harry Potter and the Deathly Harrows and follows the story of Harry, now a Ministry of Magic employee and his son Albus.
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.
