Seeing Both Parts

  • Why is it in two parts?

    This new play presents the eighth story in the Harry Potter series. Because of the epic nature of the story, it could not fit into the performance time of a traditional single play, and consequently will be told in two parts.

  • Do I have to see both parts?

    We recommend seeing Part One and Part Two for the full Cursed Child experience. However, you also have the option of seeing one Part individually on any available weekday. If you prefer to purchase an individual part, please click here.

    We do recommend that you try to see both parts consecutively, but if seeing both Parts over consecutive performances does not work for you, you can choose to see Part One on a Wednesday matinee or Thursday evening and book Part Two on an alternative Wednesday evening or Friday evening at a later date.

    Alternatively, during the purchase process you will have the option to purchase for just one part on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday performances if you wish to, subject to availability.

    If you are interested in purchasing for a group of 10 or more, you must purchase Parts One and Part Two together to be seen on the same day (matinee and evening) OR to be seen on consecutive Thursday & Friday evenings.

  • Can I buy tickets for just one part?

    Yes, during the purchase process you will have the option to purchase for just one Part on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday performances if you wish to, subject to availability.

    We do recommend seeing Part One and Part Two for the full Cursed Child experience. However, you also have the option of seeing one Part individually on any available weekday. If you prefer to purchase an individual part, please click here.

    If you are interested in purchasing for a group of 10 or more, you must purchase Parts One and Part Two together to be seen on the same day (matinee and evening) OR to be seen on consecutive Thursday & Friday evenings.

  • Can I see Part Two without having seen Part One?

    You can, subject to ticket availability. However, we recommend seeing both parts for the full Cursed Child experience. If you prefer to purchase an individual part, please click here.

  • Why can’t I see Part One on a Saturday or Sunday matinee and Part Two on another night?

    We want to make sure that audiences have the best possible chance of seeing the play in one day. If we sold the Saturday and Sunday performances separately, then there would be no way of guaranteeing that audiences who see a matinee of Part One could also see Part Two on the same day.

Accessibility

  • I have physical access needs, who do I talk to about where I sit?

    There will be an option to select accessible seating during the ticket purchasing process.  If you purchase accessible seats, the Lyric Theatre Team will call you following your purchase to discuss the details of your visit.
