theatre newsHarry Potter and the Cursed Child

It’s the latest outing into the world of Harry Potter for author JK Rowling, but it’s unlike any other we’ve seen before; the play is fast approaching, and the first preview snippet has appeared online.

A short clip has summoned itself as our guide Rowling looks on at the actors rehearsing, with a glimpse behind the scenes of one of the most talked about stage productions in recent years.

Check it out, courtesy of the play’s official Twitter page:

The play is directed by John Tiffany and written by Jack Thorne. The trio of Hermione, Harry and Ron are played by Noma Demezweni, Jaime Parker, and Paul Thorneley respectively.

Previews of the show start in July.

Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further... If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths. Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
