Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play to be a sequel.
The new Harry Potter play based on the original series will be a follow-up to the Deathly Hallows.
The synopsis on the official website for the production reads "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".
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is one play presented in two Parts, which are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.
The play will preview in May and the world premiere will follow on 30 July. Tickets are already available, here.
