Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One and Two: The Official Playscript of the Original West End Production by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany & Jack Thorne Book Summary

The official playscript of the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

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.

The playscript for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was originally released as a 'special rehearsal edition' alongside the opening of Jack Thorne's play in London's West End in summer 2016. Based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, the play opened to rapturous reviews from theatregoers and critics alike, while the official playscript became an immediate global bestseller.

This definitive and final playscript 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.

Stop Being RudeI didn’t read the book I watched all the movies when I was younger then I started reading the books.. LOVED IT! But I didn’t read this one and I already see one of the reviews this person calling the author by her name as if he or she knows her. Have some respect don’t be that harsh. Also u don’t have to say it’s terrible or unreasonable just say some problems or add suggestions. Not a full on opinion essay on how much you hate the book. Honestly I’m happy there’s another book. And I don’t judge that easily that’s what makes me a bad judge I can’t be mean. And right now honestly if it is bad I’ll still live the book..Score: 5/5

Great story, needs improvementHarry Potter and the Cursed Child is a great play script. There were a lot of new characters that weren’t really introduced, so it was a little confusing. The villains were also basically a copy of the villains in the Harry Potter series. And it’s pretty much repeating. Throughout the entire story, Albus and Scorpius were traveling through time. But what truly makes this story a good one is the power of story. The Harry Potter series is one incredible story, and building off of the series makes this play script amazing. I love Harry Potter, and I’m very happy that there was this story. The Harry Potter series has also taught me an important yet simple lesson. Love and friendship is the key to everything..Score: 3/5

I’m disappointed in you JK RowlingThis is trash 😡 I would be just as happy IF this were a normal book....Scorpius becoming king? Harry dying just because of time travel?! This is horrible! If JK wanted to make a 8th book....it would be better if it was NOT a play. Now about the story....Look here I like the part about Delphi and Harry dulling but....Voldy and bellytrix (Voldemort and bellatrix) having a child?! Really Joanna Rowling? (JK) I never thought you would write a play book! Who would want to read a playbook? I’m so disappointed in you Rowling! I would have reread this book more often than this, ☹️ you dissatisfy me Rowling! (Please please please write a more liking book next time you write one!).Score: 1/5

Why?!?!?Why all the haters? This was a fine book. Not as good as the original HP series but I still enjoyed it..Score: 4/5

Love it! But one minor problem!It’s a great book but it doesn’t make so much sense: 1. Voldemort has... a daughter! Seriously! Voldemort shouldn’t love anyone! He’s... Voldemort! 2. Dumbledore, who is usually kind and understanding, is acting so stuck-up and annoying! What’s up with that?! 3. Why did it have to be a play? Make it a movie and normal book! That’s all the bad things I have to say! Now for the good: IM A CRAZY HARRY POTTER FAN AND IM ALSO A SLYTHERIN! Pls don’t think I’m weird for liking the best house at Hogwarts. I think the cursed child is a very good book. I read it and all the twists and turns were too much for me! I gtg because I have to watch the Deathly Hallows now. Bye! Ps: I’m sure jk Rowling feels so bad becuz of all the criticism you give her. I LIKE THIS BOOK A LOT AND IM STIIL A HUGE FAN OF ROWLING. HATERS BACK OFF BECAUSE JK ROWLING (AND SHANNON MESSENGER, AUTHOR OF KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES) ARE THE BEST AUTHORS IN THE HISTORY OF AUTHORS!!!!!!👍👍👍👍👍👍👍.Score: 4/5

I HATE ITMy friend and i are big potter fans, but this book is... im sorry to say this but im sure that J.K rowling has written this book just because she needed the money (so is my friend). We didn't expect J.K rowling to end a book by getting married and children and etc. AND HOW IS HARRY POTTER 37!? How is that even possible when he is 11 in the first harry potter book!? Sorry dear writers, i don't want to be rude, and i know how much time you have spent writing this book, but its not even worth A CENT. Why should harry grow up? Why cant he stay a teenager? This isnt real life. No need to grow up, or get married... i dont understand... just tell me WHY!? I didnt expect you... J.K rowling! I thought you were the best writer in the whole world, BUT NOT ANYMORE.😭 Dont spend your precious money for this 🤬🤬🤬 book. I liked the other harry potter series but id rather not to know what happens at the end if harry is a grown-up and adult person... 👎 sorry,... i would rate 0 stars if it was possible..Score: 1/5

Terrific ReadAs a huge fan of Harry Potter, I admit I have put off reading this particular novel. I felt too nostalgic about the originals because I grew up with them. I have recently reread one through seven, and was pleasantly surprised to see all the things I missed as a child, not being able to understand certain things. As an adult, I have found a new appreciation for Harry Potter and all of his trials and tribulations. I have heard from many people about their thoughts on this novel and I admit, it made me reticent to read it. Despite that however, I felt I had to read this; the eighth novel. I am very glad I did. If you can appreciate that, Harry Potter and friends, won’t behave the same as they did when they were teenagers because they are adults with jobs and kids now. That changes who you are. Is anyone reading this the same as they were when they were a teenager? I think not. As they say often, “Love is blind”..Score: 5/5

HORRIBLE!!!!HATE HATE HATE HATE IT!!!! You totally sold out J.K.!!! Because this makes Harry a terrible father!! Not the kind loving man he grew into!! The only reason people are go to see this play ....myself included (my family that is is because you put your name on it. I think you sold out for MONEY!!!!!! I only liked Harry and Draco finding a place to burry bad feelings for their children. But that’s it!!! Whoever wrote this cold piece of trash!! And you have made the nicest best character in Magical Creatures basically in 10 seconds flips her switch into a crazy NAZI witch!! Why not move to London and get married there instead of hooking up with Hannibal Lecture???!!!! What the heck ???!!!!.Score: 1/5

Not that bad but still bad( would not recommend)I don’t like it. I always kinda liked the fact that Voldemort wasn’t able to love anyone,BUT YET HE WAS ABLE TO HAVE A FREAKING DAUGHTER, with Bellatrix which it kinda makes sense on her side of the spectrum but Idt that he has functioning body parts that are for having a child..Score: 1/5

BIG POTTER FAN but...I hate this book! So many things made no sense (all timeturners were destroyed)! Albus is just a crybaby and spoilt brat, and I don’t see how Harmonie is minister of magic. The lines and dialogue are really bad (ex: Wow . Skeak. My geekiness is a quivering.) One thing I do like is how the Malfoys are good and that they make me feel bad for Scorpious.

Great Harry Potter playscript!!!!!I’m going to have to admit I’m a little disappointed that the cursed child was a play and a playscript instead of a movie and a book.

Loved it!!!!!!!.Score: 5/5

Ehhhhh......This is NOT because it’s a script. I just think this story was not well done at all. Bland villain, same old story as the original series, just not compelling at all. This “sequel” did not (no pun intended) capture the same magic as the original series. It’s completely unnecessary, and doesn’t resolve anything in the end. Please do not make this into a film, I really don’t want to see it. If there is a sequel in development, please make it a different story..Score: 1/5

Worse than a fanfic. (Please read before buying)There are many thing wrong with this book. First of all, why write a story that revolves around time travel if every possible item to do it was destroyed in the original series. Also, for plot convince, the time turners do not affect the user’s age depending on how far back they travelled. If that logic complies, Scorpius would be dead already and Albus would almost be dead. But no. And, Harry is humble, not a stuck-up. They made Harry how Malfloy was and Malfloy became like Harry. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg. And, since when did Voldemort have a daughter? His character isn’t supposed to be able to love. These authors did a horrible job of recreating the magic of the Jk Rowling..Score: 1/5

I HATE THAT & finally (I think) 5. IT’S JUST ( if i said cuss words, which i don’t) bleeeeeeeeep. That’s what I think. Once again, do not recommend, so don’t read. P. S.
