J.K. Rowling’s highly anticipated sequel to the beloved Harry Potter novels premiered at London’s Palace Theatre in July 2016, earning five-star reviews from audiences and critics alike. Written in collaboration with BAFTA winner Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth instalment of the country’s favourite series.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child sees the beloved characters 19 years later, as the Potter family struggle to cope with the past. After the trials and tribulations of his time at Hogwarts, Harry is now an employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and a father of three children. Whilst Harry continues to remember the darker moments of his past, his youngest son Albus must carry the weight of his family legacy. Both Harry and Albus soon realise the truth; that sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places.
