Cursed Child is the first canon story to feature Harry Potter and his family after the epilogue in Deathly Hallows. The story will unfold as a stageplay in London, where previews began in June. The play officially debuts on July 30th, and a published version of the play script will hit store shelves the following day for fans who aren’t able to make it to the West End to see the show live.
