Harry Potter as a Play {Harry Potter & the Cursed Child Release}

The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, 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 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.

The release of the new Harry Potter installment has very mixed reviews just 24 hours after its release. Harry Potter & the Cursed Child is labeled as the 8th installment of the series but it is not a written novel like its predecessors. This new installment is the rehearsal script for a PLAY written by Rowling's and two others.  

I've never read a script and I am a little hesitant to dive in.
I want to know, did it bring back all #thefeels ? Is it still fun to read as a script? Were all the goodies you got at the midnight release epic?!?
