The first of three sets of Charlie Gray’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child portraits have been released.
Featuring Jamie Parker as Harry Potter, Poppy Miller as Ginny Potter and Sam Clemmett as Albus Potter, the shots are the first glimpse that Harry Potter fans have had of the much-loved characters in their older incarnations.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, and is directed by John Tiffany. Previews for Part One of the show being on 7th June 2016 and previews of Part Two start on 9th June 2016.
The Official Opening performances of Part One and Part Two will take place on Saturday 30 July 2016. The synopsis for the show is:
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.
