Today it was revealed that J.K. Rowling will be co-producing a stage play based on Harry Potter. The play will not be written by Rowling, but she will collaborate with a playwright and fellow producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender.
The play will deal with “the previously untold story of Harry Potter’s early years as an orphan and outcast.” Rowling says of the idea that Friedman and Callender brought to her:
[It] was the only one that really made sense to me, and which had the sensitivity, intensity and intimacy I thought appropriate for bringing Harry’s story to the stage.
The play is expected on the West End in London within the next two years.
