Open late for Harry's birthday!



Don’t know if you’ve heard…there is a new Harry Potter story coming out on July 31st. 

The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.  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.
In this new play by Jack Thorne and J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.

It’s Harry’s birthday and there is a new tale to be told? Amazing.  Well, also amazing, after-words will be staying open until midnight on July 30th so that we can sell you your copy at 12:01am.  This is the Official Script Book of the West End Production. Available July 31st for $29.99
You’ll have to get the Knight Bus home.
