Potted Potter – the hilarious production that aims to condense all of Harry Potter’s seven books into one 70-minute show – is set for an extended return to London.
It has played out to sold out houses all over the world and now the Olivier Award-nominated Potted Potter – The Unauthorised Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff will be at the Garrick Theatre for a short, three-week run.
Dan Clarkson and Jeff Turner take on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books – and a real life Quidditch match with the audience – into one hilarious show that people staying in luxury suites in London will not want to miss out on.
Even if you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, Potted Potter will make comers of all ages roar with laughter.
The production has grown astronomically from a five-minute street sketch that recapped the first five books for those standing in line for the release of the sixth novel Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in 2005.
It has expanded to runs throughout the UK and also in Canada and the US, which have all received critical acclaim.
The Guardian has previously described it as “blissfully funny”, while the Daily Telegraph claimed it “will tickle the funny bone of every age group”.
Running from March 23rd to April 13th, people won’t have long to purchase tickets for one of the shows. The fact that they are only £20 reinforces how much of a must-see this production really is.
The Garrick Theatre is ideally located to arrive at from any hotel in the city as it is within easy walking distance of a number of Tube stops including Piccadilly Circus and Charing Cross.
