Why is Pottermore publishing a Special Rehearsal Edition of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two?

The eighth Harry Potter story, which was written to be staged and experienced live in the theatre, will be published to allow the epic, eighth Harry Potter story to be read by those fans globally who may not be able to see the stage version in London. That’s why it will be published almost immediately after the play’s opening night. However, the nature of theatre is such that changes will be made right up to opening night, and potentially after. For this reason, a Definitive Edition of the script book will be published in 2017.

 
Will the Definitive Edition replace the Special Rehearsal Edition?

Yes, the Special Rehearsal Edition will only be available for a limited time, and will be succeeded by the Definitive Edition.

 
Are there any editorial differences between the Definitive Edition and the Special Rehearsal Edition?

The Special Rehearsal Edition comprises the version of the play script used early in the production's preview period, several weeks prior to the opening performances. The preview process allows the creative team to rehearse changes and/or to explore specific scenes further, in front of a live audience, before the official opening performances on Saturday 30 July. As such, the script is subject to change after the Special Rehearsal Edition has been published.

 
Can my theatre group, amateur dramatics group, youth group, school or establishment produce a performance of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child?

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two may not be performed in whole or in part and no use may be made of it whatsoever except under express licence from the rights holders of the work, J.K.
