Camden, North London. A tangled, mangled junction of train lines, roads and waterways. Where minor celebrities hang out with minor criminals and where tourists and moody teenagers mingle. In the heart of Camden, where rail meets road meets leyline, you might find the Arcana Emporium, run by one Alex Verus.
Reading a script usually requires more imagination than reading a novel; however, when that script features locations like the Hogwarts staircases, the Forbidden Forest and the Ministry of Magic, it requires a little less imagination. Thanks to the magic of film, Harry Potter fans have already seen and know these locations intimately.
Reading the story as a script may be strange at first, but the writing is so good that you soon forget that you are not, in fact, reading a novel. The story picks up exactly where The Deathly Hallows left off, with the “Nineteen Years Later” epilogue. Harry, Ron and Hermione are now in their late 30s and their children are off for their first year at Hogwarts.
We then follow Harry’s youngest son, Albus Severus Potter, as he boards the Hogwarts Express and meets Scorpius Malfoy, the son of Draco. Fortunately for fans, the play focuses just as much on the adult lives of Harry, Ginny, Ron, Hermione and Draco as it does on their children. But anyone concerned that this play is not suitable for children need not worry. It is.
The story has all the elements we came to expect and love in the original Harry Potter novels: there’s humour, there’s suspense, there’s emotion and so much more. There are also plenty of nods to characters and events in the original series, which makes the nostalgia factor all the more powerful. All in all, this is a worthy addition to the wizarding world of Harry Potter.

The Harry Potter franchise has made a name around the world. The name alone transports the reader to a world of mystery and magic, filling the ones who’ve read the books with beautiful memories from when they first got their hands on their very own copy. The collection of books is nostalgic memories for the 90’s children who have grown up reading the books. Now almost 20 years later, reading the books again feels like the very first time. It is extremely rare for books to have repeat value, but with the spell binding story that Harry Potter takes you on, is just impossible to forget or put down. J.K. Rowling has created a phenomenon. She skillfully crafted a story with immense creativity and whimsical thinking, creating a world where “PotterHeads” can escape to every time they need a little magic.
