The official playscript of the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed
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
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.
The playscript for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was originally released as a 'special
rehearsal edition' alongside the opening of Jack Thorne's play in London's West End in
summer 2016. Based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne,
the play opened to rapturous reviews from theatregoers and critics alike, while the official
playscript became an immediate global bestseller.
This revised paperback edition updates the 'special rehearsal edition' with the conclusive
and final dialogue from the play, which has subtly changed since its rehearsals, as well as
a conversation piece between director John Tiffany and writer Jack Thorne, who share
stories and insights about reading playscripts. This edition also includes useful background
information including the Potter family tree and a timeline of events from the Wizarding
World prior to the beginning of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
