Billed as “the eighth story, 19 years later”, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Parts One And Two continues to cast a spell over the West End at the Palace Theatre in a two-part play written by Jack Thorne, JK Rowling and John Tiffany, which won a record-breaking 9 Olivier Awards in 2017.

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.

Tiffany and Thorne, who worked together on the Royal Court’s acclaimed production of Let The Right One In, join forces with movement director Steven Hoggett, designer Christine Jones and sound designer Gareth Fry, all of whom worked with them on the vampire myth, to bring the wizarding tale to life on the London stage at the Palace Theatre.

Surpassing The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time and Matilda The Musical as the most decorated production in the Olivier Awards’ history, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’s unanimous acclaim from audiences and critics alike saw it dominate the 2017 Olivier Awards with Mastercard ceremony.

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child won the awards for Virgin Atlantic Best New Play, as well as Best Actor (Jamie Parker, the eponymous hero in the original cast), Best Actress & Actor in a Supporting Role (Noma Dumezweni as Hermione & Anthony Boyle as Scorpius respectively), Best Director (John Tiffany), and all four design awards (White Light Award for Best Lighting Design, Best Sound Design, Best Costume Design & Blue-i Theatre Technology Award for Best Set Design).

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child is one play presented in two parts.  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.

Please note this production is staged in two parts. For full ticketing details visit the show’s website.
