J.K. Rowling’s Play ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ Will Be Split Into Two Parts

Much like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film adaptations, the upcoming Harry Potter play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be split into two parts.

Explained play director John Tiffany on Rowling’s newly-revamped site Pottermore, “It shares a scale and ambition with all the Harry Potter stories so in order to do this justice we have decided to present the play in two parts.”

According to show’s website (which is now accepting sign-ups for priority access), the plays are designed to be seen “on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.”

As for the plot? Said Tiffany, “We have been given the unique opportunity to explore some of the most cherished books and beloved characters ever written, yet work with J.K. Rowling to tell a story from that world that no one yet knows.”

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will premiere in London’s West End in the summer of 2016. You can view seating and purchase tickets here.

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 will receive its world premiere in London’s West End at the Palace Theatre in the summer of 2016.
