Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the classic Harry Potter series, and the first official stage adaptation. Performed in two separate parts, the story is set nineteen years after the last book ended and follows the story of the Potter gang and their children, who are now themselves going off to Hogwarts.

Both parts are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.  On Thursdays, there is an evening performance of Part One and on Fridays an evening performance of Part Two. On those days tickets to each part can be bought together or separately.  Tickets for Wednesday matinee and Wednesday evening performances can also be bought together or separately.

The most awarded new play in theatre history, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has won 24 major theatre awards in the UK and is the most awarded play in the history of the Olivier Awards, winning a record-breaking nine awards including Best New Play.
