The magical adventure continuesReuniting lifelong fans with Harry, Ron and Hermione, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the spectacular continuation of J.K. Rowling’s iconic tale of witchcraft & wizardry, casting its spell at the Palace Theatre.
The play, written by Jack Thorne, takes place 19 years after the events of the final novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Harry is now a father and an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, still grappling with the events of his past. Meanwhile, Harry’s son Albus, is grappling with the weight of the family legacy. As the past and present come hurtling together, Harry and Albus realise that sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
Director John Tiffany and master illusionist Jamie Harrison have created a dazzling array of mind-bending special effects to bring the magic of Harry Potter to life. When it premiered in 2016, the play scooped a record-breaking nine Olivier Awards and has whipped up a ticket-buying frenzy ever since.
Both a delight for long-term fans and magical example of kids' theatre in London, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets are some of the most in-demand in the West End.
