But anyway, now they want you to buy tickets to not one, but TWO performances because the play is going to be shown in two parts. I'm not sure how they expect families with children to afford this, plus a stay in London overnight. It seems very elitist to me.

The narrative is believed to take place during Harry’s early years, although Rowling has stressed that it’s not a prequel. Beyond that, plot details on the new play are being tightly protected by a Fidelius Charm.
In an announcement posted on Rowling’s Pottermore website, Tiffany explained the decision to split Cursed Child in two. “It shares a scale and ambition with all the Harry Potter stories so in order to do this justice we have decided to present the play in two parts,” he said. Friedman echoed his comments in a chat with The Daily Mail, saying the story was “too long to be told in a traditional length and it became inevitable that it had to be in two parts.”
Unlike the Deathly Hallows movies, which kept audiences waiting a year for the second half of the story, fans will be able to see both parts of Cursed Child relatively quickly. “It can be seen on consecutive days in the same week or in some instances on the same day,” said Friedman. More specifically, The Daily Mail has heard that “parts one and two will be performed on consecutive weekdays, while at weekends, audiences will be able to watch both parts in one day.”
Details on Cursed Child tickets are expected to arrive next month. Both parts of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will premiere at the Palace Theatre in London’s West End next summer.
