About Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

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 Olivier and BAFTA Award-winner Jack Thorne, received its world premiere in June 2016 at the Palace Theatre in London, where it continues to play to sold-out houses. The critically acclaimed play is the most-awarded production in the history of Britain's prestigious Olivier Awards, winning a record-breaking nine awards including Best New Play and Best Director.

Directed by Olivier and Tony Award-winner John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage, bringing together some of the most exciting talent working in the theatre today.
