He was immortalized on screen by Daniel Radcliffe, now Harry Potter, is set to make his debut on the London stage next year in a new play. JK Rowling says on her Twitter feed that the new play, called the Cursed Child, was the result of a collaboration between herself and writer Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany. The author added that she didn't want to give too much away at this stage but confirmed that it was not a prequel. One of the world's best-selling authors, Rowling said she had countless offers to extend the "Harry Potter" story over the years, but felt the play was the only proper medium for a new tale. Tickets for the play, which will open next summer at the Palace Theatre, will go on sale in the autumn.
