“Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne, is the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. It 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.”


Why?:


I got into a interesting debate with my local postal worker (what I buy a lot of Harry Potter stamps...) about when Harry Potter cannon stops - does Rowling's Twitter comments count? Do we really need anymore Potter? While I do believe a some point she's really going to have to stop giving us more information (because we are always going to want more) I am extremely excited about this play, and even more excited it is being made available for those of us who cannot make it to London.

What is your Waiting On Wednesday pick this week?
