Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play 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.

    Comments about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts I & II (Special Rehearsal Edition):

    Okay so I knew full well this was not a novel, so my review is not about how I think of this as a novel, but as a play rehearsal, as intended.
    Me, like a billion others, bave been subjected to the random pangs of uncontrollable sadness and nostalgia over the years when it comes to Harry Potter. Then sometimes you snap and re-read all the books in two days and watch all the movies in the same amount of time. It leaves you in an emotional wreck, but you still do it. It was after one of these... episodes... that I decided I would sate my soul and purchase Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I this was not going to be a J K Rowling standard of perfection.
    HPATCC is what it is. I liked it and it gave me an insight into the questions I had always asked in the dead of night; 'what happened to my babies?'
    I didnt like some of the answers and I dont believe the plot was too fantastic, but it kept me interested and I didnt stop reading once I started. I could imagine everything I was reading in my head, forming a picture that I enjoyed and wanted to see more of. But in saying that, it felt like they tried compressing the finesse, wit and magic from the movie and simplifying it to the point of lines that felt very forced and characters that I sometimes could not relate to. Also, I found a major part of the plot very unbelievable. I wont give it away, but its got something to do with You-know-Who and family.
    I dont recommend this for younger readers, but I do recommend it for those wondering what happened to the golden trio. You will have mixed emotions. Might read it again when I reorganise the files on my laptop when Im bored one day.

    J. K. Rowling

    J K (Joanne Kathleen) Rowling was born in July 1965 at Yate General Hospital in England and grew up in Chepstow, Gwent where she went to Wyedean Comprehensive.

    Jo left Chepstow for Exeter University, where she earned a French and Classics degree, her course including one year in Paris. As a postgraduate she moved to London and worked as a researcher at Amnesty International among other jobs. She started writing the Harry Potter series during a delayed Manchester to London King's Cross train journey, and during the next five years, outlined the plots for each book and began writing the first novel.

    Jo then moved to northern Portugal, where she taught English as a foreign language. She married in October 1992 and gave birth to a daughter Jessica in 1993. When the marriage ended, she and Jessica returned to the UK to live in Edinburgh, where Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone was eventually completed.

    Jo married Dr. Neil Murray in 2001, and a brother for Jessica, David, was born in 2003. A sister, Mackenzie, followed in 2005.
