The official playscript of the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
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.
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 definitive and final playscript 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.
I wanted sooooo much more omg 😩I need a part 3 and 4
Love it! But one minor problem!
It’s a great book but it doesn’t make so much sense:
1. Voldemort has... a daughter! Seriously! Voldemort shouldn’t love anyone! He’s... Voldemort!
2. Dumbledore, who is usually kind and understanding, is acting so stuck-up and annoying! What’s up with that?!
3. Why did it have to be a play? Make it a movie and normal book!
That’s all the bad things I have to say! Now for the good:
IM A CRAZY HARRY POTTER FAN AND IM ALSO A SLYTHERIN! Pls don’t think I’m weird for liking the best house at Hogwarts. I think the cursed child is a very good book. I read it and all the twists and turns were too much for me! I gtg because I have to watch the Deathly Hallows now. Bye!
Ps: I’m sure jk Rowling feels so bad becuz of all the criticism you give her. I LIKE THIS BOOK A LOT AND IM STIIL A HUGE FAN OF ROWLING. HATERS BACK OFF BECAUSE JK ROWLING (AND SHANNON MESSENGER, AUTHOR OF KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES) ARE THE BEST AUTHORS IN THE HISTORY OF AUTHORS!!!!!!👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
This was amazing. It was alway advertised as a play script, because it is an actual play. They made it a book so those who couldn’t see the play would still be able to experience the next chapter of Harry Potter. I loved it!
