Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One and Two: The Official Playscript of the Original West End Production (Paperback)J. K. Rowling (author), John Tiffany (author), Jack Thorne (author)
Shortlisted for the Waterstones Book of the Year 2016
It’s impossible to underestimate the number of booksellers who joined our ranks by virtue of J.K. Rowling’s early spell, lending the ‘scriptbook’, as we discover it to be called, of Harry Potter’s return a deep significance. Our parties at midnight celebrating both the publication of the book and the premiere of the play encapsulated the adoration so many hold for this extraordinary universe, and the phenomenal sales that followed only proved the continuing power of Rowling’s vision.
This revised paperback edition updates the 'special rehearsal edition' with the conclusive and final dialogue from the play, which has subtly changed since its rehearsals, as well as a conversation piece between director John Tiffany and writer Jack Thorne, who share stories and insights about reading playscripts. This edition also includes useful background information including the Potter family tree and a timeline of events from the wizarding world prior to the beginning of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
Publisher: Little, Brown Book Group
Number of pages: 352
Weight: 278 g

Fans can breathe easy knowing this play has been respectfully and lovingly wrought. Tensions thrum, spells fly but at center stage, as always in the Potterverse, is the overriding importance of love and friendship, especially in the face of danger * Booklist, starred review *
