This is a brand-new Harry Potter story by JK Rowling herself, which follows on from the end of the books.
Harry Potter is now a husband, an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, and a busy father of three school-age kids. But the past refuses to stay where it belongs, and his youngest son is soon struggling with his family's legacy. As Harry's past catches up with him he learns that darkness can sometimes come from unexpected places.
The story has been split up into two parts, so if you want to see the entire thing then you need to book two completely different shows. If you come on a Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday then you can book both parts for the same day, but the second part of Thursdays show will be shown on the Friday (it's a very strange way to present a play!)
