Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Parts I And IIDuration Part One: 2h40 / Part Two: 2h35

Palace Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London, United Kingdom W1D 5AY

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

Jamie Parker, whose recent London stage roles include hit musicals Guys And Dolls and High Society, stars as the eponymous Boy Wizard, and is joined in the cast by Olivier Award winner Noma Dumezweni (Linda, Royal Court) as Hermione and Paul Thornley (A Chorus Of Disapproval, West End) as Ron, until 21 May 2017.

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.

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.

From 24 May 2017, Jamie Glover will play Harry Potter with Emma Lowndes as his wife Ginny Potter and Theo Ancient as their son Albus Potter.  Thomas Aldridge will play Ron Weasley with Rakie Ayola as Hermione Granger and Helen Aluko as their daughter Rose Granger-Weasley.  Playing Draco Malfoy will be James Howard with Samuel Blenkin as his son Scorpius Malfoy. They are joined by new cast members David Annen, Ruthxjiah Bellenea, Danny Dalton, Leah Haile, Rupert Henderson, Elizabeth Hill, April Hughes, James McGregor, Sarah Miele, Jordan Paris, James Phoon, Henry Rundle, Ged Simmons, Mark Theodore, Gideon Turner and Ed White.
