For many hardcore Harry Potter fans, seven books and eight films were simply not enough to curb their appetite for the magical wizarding world. After the final page in The Deathly Hallows was turned, a lot of readers were left with Post Potter Depression. But muggles need not suffer any more thanks to the critically acclaimed stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which picks up where the last book’s epilogue left off: 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts in the Second Wizarding War. The continuation to the beloved story, this time in the form of a stage play form, not only paints a story of the next generation of Harry Potter characters, but it also makes fans out of a whole new generation of young readers.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child plot summary
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.
