Special Rehearsal Edition of the Official Script Book of the Original West End Production
J. K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, John Tiffany
A full nineteen years has passed since the climactic finale of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Voldemort is a shadow of the past; Harry Potter himself is now a burdened employee at the Ministry of Magic, the wizarding triumphs of his youth seemingly shelved for the demands of family life.
Once again, the vaulting arches of Kings Cross become the gateway to wild adventure as young Albus Severus Potter – Harry’s now second son boards a waiting Hogwarts Express, prepared to fulfil his own destinies.
What lies ahead is as much about the past as it is the future; it will be a time of unexpected alliances and the extraordinary lure of potentially changing what has already come to be. Although much-loved comrades will indeed play their part – no Harry Potter tale can possibly be complete without the courage and companionship of Ron and Hermione – this is very much the next extraordinary chapter, a story where the son of the world’s most famous wizard finds both camaraderie and friendship in a most surprising place, the boy Scorpius Malfoy, son of Draco.
In the pages of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, one of the very great creations of children’s literature – the incredible world of Harry Potter – lives once again, the unmistakable and authentic voice of J.K Rowling given sparkling form by writer Jack Thorne’s unmatched understanding of the series. As both companion to the play and as a standalone volume in its own right, theOfficial Script Book is the ultimate passport of return to the world’s most treasured fictional universe.
