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. This is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series, and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. 

For The Record:

This production is on hiatus, due to the COVID 19 restrictions. The production will re-open as a newly staged one-show version. 

This new play had its World Premiere in the West End at the Palace in July 2016. It was originally presented in two parts.
