Harry Potter is all grown-up in this eighth story in the Harry Potter series, the first to be presented onstage. Harry is now married, the father of three school-age children and an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic. Life has never been easy for Harry as he continues to struggle with his past. His youngest son, too, faces difficulties as he bears the burden of a formidable family legacy not of his choosing. Together, father and son face their demons.
