“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” the Play

True magic never dies, even if it grows up. The same is right about good literature. Harry Potter goes theatre. A new grand-scale project follows the magician guy as an adult with his children. World premiere this Summer in West End.

Are you the organizer of this event?

Flying characters are not new to British literature for children. But, unlike Peter Pan, Harry Potter can survive and even keep his magic power after growing up.

His new “incarnation” this time takes shape of a play in two parts, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which is to get its world premiere this July while preview performances are anticipated in late May. The new story is the eighth Harry Potter piece but only the first one meant especially for stage.

The plot of the play finds grown-up Harry employed in the Ministry of Magic (and getting loads of work) and raising three children together with his wife. The youngest kid, Albus, starts facing challenges of the similar nature as his father does: those from the past. Both have to deal with the burden that past lays on their shoulders. Changing shapes and names, magic keeps attracting evil and opposing it.

The play also features Harry's magician friends, Ron and Hermione. Special events, besides preview performances, include ticket lotteries. Keep an eye on the play's official website.
