Publisher's Summary

Please note: This is context and critical analysis, not the original book.

Harry Potter is back! The entire Potter Mania world rejoiced when news came out that British author J. K. Rowling is all set to surprise them with another incredible story. The announcement that a stage play based on Harry Potter is underway was made in December 2013. The upcoming stage play was officially confirmed on the 18th anniversary of the UK publication of the first Harry Potter book, on June 26, 2015.

The play, titled Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, is the eighth part of the Harry Potter series and scripted by J. K Rowling in collaboration with John Tiffany, who will direct the production, and Jack Thorne, who has written the resulting play. It will be staged in two parts, I and II. Parts I and II are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.

Potter fans desperately waiting for another story (I am one of them) went crazy with delight when confirmation came that it is the official sequel to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It will receive its official world premiere on Saturday, July 30, 2016, at Palace Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London. on the 20th anniversary of the UK publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. The show's premiere production is scheduled to begin previews on June 7, 2016. You may not be able to get your hands on the play, but this readers guide will provide you with some context to the upcoming play and some critical interpretations of the series in general.

  • Context of the upcoming play

    "Be aware!"

    Be aware that this doesn't just say about the new screen play but has some radical views on the story as a hole being about child abuse! It Kills the magic xx

    "My mistake"
    What would have made Readers Guide: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts I & II: Context and Critical Analysis better?

    My mistake, I was so eager to buy the newest Harry Potter book that I didn't read the description of this audiobook. It was hard to listen to, and no better than looking up internet stories on the book.


    Any additional comments?

    BEWARE - read what you are buying - don't make my mistake.
