J K Rowling has announced that the forthcoming West End play Harry Potter And The Cursed Child will be presented in two parts.
The stage play by Jack Thorne is based on a new story by J K Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany and will premiere in Summer 2016 at London’s Palace Theatre.
Playwright Jack Thorne said ‘Obviously I loved it when we decided to tell this story in two parts,’ Jack tells us, ‘because I got to spend more time with the characters and what an honour that has been.
‘It continues to be unbelievable and amazing that I’ve been given this extraordinary chance to bring Harry Potter to the stage. As a fan, who just devoured the books and the films, this couldn’t be more exciting for me.’
John Tiffany added ‘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.’
