Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

4.8 (174) · Family Theatre

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany

“We’re grownups at Stagedoor. With jobs and everything. But we were giddy when we got to see Harry Potter on stage. Created by J.K. Rowling & playwright Jack Thorne, the play picks up the story where the epilogue of the last book left off: 19 years after Voldemort’s defeat. This time we’re going to Hogwarts with Harry’s son, who is struggling to live in the shadow of his legendary father. Oh, and did we mention it won more Olivier Awards than any show in history? Yeah. It did that.”


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.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne. It is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.

It one play presented in two Parts, which are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.
