The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, a new play by Jack Thorne.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London's West End on 30th July 2016.

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.

This Special Rehearsal Edition will be available to purchase until early 2017, after which a Definitive Edition of the script will go on sale.

Traduite en 79 langues, vendue à plus de 450 millions d'exemplaires et adaptée en 8 films à succès par Warner Bros, cette saga est aujourd'hui un véritable phénomène littéraire et l'une des œuvres les plus lues au monde. J. K Rowling a également signé trois ouvrages de la Bibliothèque de Poudlard publiés au profit d'organisations caritatives : « Les Contes de Beedle le Barde » pour sa propre association d'aide aux enfants, Lumos ; « Le Quidditch à travers les âges » et « Les Animaux fantastiques » pour les associations Comic Relief et Lumos. Elle a imaginé, avec l'auteur Jack Thorne et le metteur en scène John Tiffany, la pièce « Harry Potter et l'enfant maudit », dont les premières représentations ont eu lieu à Londres durant l'été 2016. On lui doit aussi des romans pour adultes : « Une place à prendre » et, sous le pseudonyme de Robert Galbraith, trois enquêtes du détective Cormoran Strike. En 2017, elle publie son premier scénario, « Les Animaux fantastiques » : le texte du film. La même année, J. K. Rowling a été nommée Companion of Honour par la reine d'Angleterre.
