J.K. Rowling released the synopsis of a new theatrical sequel to her billion dollar story with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Fri., Oct. 23.

Pottermore’s blurb of the stage prodution said,“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.”

Picking up where Deathly Hallows left off, the story will venture into Harry’s life after sending
his kids off to Hogwarts at Platform Nine and Three-Quarters.

Rowling said, “The story only exists because the right group of people came together with a brilliant idea about how to present Harry Potter on stage.”

This collaboration group includes writer Jack Thorne as well as directed by Oliver and Toney
award-winner John Tiffany, as well as the author of the classic series Rowling herself.

Debuting at London’s West End, the two part “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” will arrive during the summer of 2016. For more information on ticket sales, visit Pottermore.com.
