West End play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be a sequel, following on from the epilogue to the seventh book, which sees Harry, Ron and Hermione’s own children heading to Hogwarts.
The play will be shown in two parts, with publishers saying it should be viewed in order on the same day or over two consecutive evenings.
A brief synopsis of the play published on Friday said: “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 production will premiere in London’s West End at the Palace Theatre next summer.
Tickets prices start from £10 for some special preview tickets and £15 per part for the main run.
