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!)

The Times★★★★★ – "It is out of this world, it's magic, and it's a hit" Sunday Times★★★★★ – "The magical marvel we've been waiting for" Financial Times★★★★★ – "For a bunch of muggles the creative team has certainly brewed up a wizard show" Evening Standard★★★★★ – "For once the so-called theatrical event of the year really is just that" Daily Express★★★★★ – "You simply cannot believe the evidence of your own eyes"
