Ρόουλινγκ, τον Τζον Τίφανι και τον Τζακ Θορν, Ο Χάρι Πότερ και το καταραμένο παιδί είναι η πρώτη επίσημη ιστορία με πρωταγωνιστή τον Χάρι Πότερ που ανεβαίνει στη σκηνή. Η παγκόσμια πρεμιέρα της θεατρικής παράστασης έλαβε χώρα στο Ουέστ Εντ του Λονδίνου, στις 30 Ιουλίου 2016. Ανέκαθεν ήταν δύσκολο να είσαι ο Χάρι Πότερ και δεν έχει γίνει καθόλου ευκολότερο τώρα που ο Χάρι εργάζεται σκληρά στο Υπουργείο Μαγείας, είναι σύζυγος και πατέρας τριών παιδιών που πηγαίνουν σχολείο. Ενώ ο Χάρι παλεύει με το παρελθόν του, ο νεότερος γιος του, Άλμπους, έρχεται αντιμέτωπος με το βάρος της οικογενειακής κληρονομιάς που ποτέ του δε θέλησε. Καθώς το παρελθόν μπερδεύεται με το παρόν, πατέρας και γιος μαθαίνουν την ενοχλητική αλήθεια: κάποιες φορές το σκοτάδι προβάλλει από μέρη που δεν το περιμένεις.
