The script of a new Harry Potter play is to be published following its world premiere in London in July, publishers announced yesterday.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will officially open in the West End on July 30, while the script will come out on the following day.

The play tells the story of Harry Potter 19 years after the last book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. He is now married with three children and works at the Ministry of Magic.

"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," said publisher, Little, Brown.

Can Hermione Granger be anything other than white?

The play is based on an original story by Potter author J.K. Rowling and written by Jack Thorne.

Little, Brown CEO David Shelley said Potter fans had been begging the author to allow the book of the play to be released. "We're absolutely delighted to be able to make it available for them," he added.
