About Harry Potter and The Cursed Child Parts I & II:

Major plot details regarding Harry Potter and the Cursed Child are kept under wraps in order to #KeepTheSecrets. The play is the next chapter in the Harry Potter series, and is set nineteen years later as Harry and Ginny's son Albus attends Hogwarts for the very first time. Whilst there, he befriends Draco Malfoy's son Scorpius Malfoy and this unlikely friendship blossoms despite their parent's past troubles.   

"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."
