This production began performances on 7th June 2016 with an official opening night on 30th July 2016.

British theatre hasn’t known anything like it for decades. A triumph.

The Daily Telegraph

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.

A theatre production of immense wonder.

The Independent
