Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Palace Theatre, Shaftesbury Ave, London W1D 5AY

Having opened in 2016, this play managed to charm both, young and old. Based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, this Harry Potter prequel is the first story to be presented on stage.
Harry’s youngest son Albus, who is about to attend Hogwards School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, struggles with the past of his famous father. Being an outsider, his only real friend is Scorpio Malfoy, who, according to rumors, might be a late offspring of the Dark Lord.

It is a story about friendship, family and dark secrets, mixed with a dash of humour that not only casts a spell over true Harry Potter fans.

Duke of York’s Theatre, St Martin’s Lane, London, WC2N 4BG

James Graham’s latest satire explores the creation of The Sun newspaper. The young Rupert Murdoch, portrayed by Bertie Carvel, pursues the challenge to make his new bought, struggling broadsheet a newspaper that even outshines the sales of The Daily Mirror, the highest-selling newspaper in the world at that time.

Fast-paced, the play immerses in the incomparable energy of the time. This dynamic and atomsphere combined with Carvel’s performance as the young Murdoch is what makes this play a must-see.

The Book of Mormon

Prince of Wales Theatre, Coventry St, London, W1D 6AS

The story revolves around two Mormons from Salt Lake City sent as missionaries to Uganda of all places. The odd pair, one nerdy and geeky, the other neat and confident, find themselves in a disease-racked village trying to convert the locals.

Despite its comical depiction of Mormons, its character is anything but mean. Originally written, the play wins over the audience with a hilariously witty story and surprisingly good music.
