Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Author: JK Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne
Publisher: Little Brown UK
Publication Date: 30th July 2016
Synopsis from GoodReads:
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne, is the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. It will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on 30th July 2016
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.

- Um, hello?! It’s HARRY POTTER!!! Do I really need to list the reasons?
- I’ve been having Harry Potter withdrawals for years.
- I NEED to know what happens next with all my HP babies…
