Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne, is the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. It will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on 30th July 2016
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.
‘Why didn’t you post this sooner, Nienke?’ You question. Wasn’t I thinking about Harry Potter? Yes, I was. I still cry over Remadora fanfiction.
I was so busy looking for other books, that I kind of forgot to post Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Yes, I sometimes fail at life. This is one of them. Anyway, I’m so thrilled there’s coming an eighth book. When I heard last year I couldn’t believe it. ANOTHER HARRY POTTER BOOK. BLESS THE LORDS ABOVE US. I still need to pre-order it, which I’ll do as soon as I have some money saved. I can’t wait to see what J.K. Rowling has in store for us!
