Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling (the author of the 'Harry Potter' series), Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, 'Harry Potter And The Cursed Child' is one play presented in two parts, set 19 years after the events of 'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows'.
Check out the synopsis of the show below.
"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."
