The story of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
A new adventure awaits. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child picks up with Harry, who is now an overworked employee at the Ministry of Magic, a husband and a father of three children. As his headstrong son Albus befriends the son of Draco Malfoy, his biggest adversary, an intense and thrilling race through time ensues. With enchanting charms and spells, epic battles and mindblowing theatrical magic, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child presents a tale of humanity, one which sees a son grappling with an overbearing family legacy and a father who struggles fiercely with the past.

From as early as I can recall, writing has always been my passion. Being able to combine this with my love for theatre has been a rewarding and exhilarating experience. I truly believe that there is magic in seeing a story brought to life on stage, and this is what I would like to promote to audiences.
