    J.K Rowling Asks "Cursed Child" Ticket Holders To Not Spoil The Plot

    "I'm asking you to keep the secrets, and let audiences enjoy Cursed Child with all the surprises we've built to the story."

    In a new short video ahead of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child previews at London's Palace Theatre, J.K. Rowling asks theatregoers to not spoil the story's surprises.

    Previews for the two-part drama begin formally tomorrow evening.

    Here's what she says in the video:

    Why is she saying this? The script for the play will not be released as a book until 31 July, and with previews beginning shortly, spoilers are possible.

    You’ll be able to buy the published play from 31st July, so the story of #CursedChild will be available to everyone #KeepTheSecrets

    She also tweeted that "it isn't about ticket sales: we've been sold out for ages", but offered a consolation:

    This isn’t about ticket sales: we’ve been sold out for ages* #CursedChild #KeepTheSecrets *but look out for the #FridayForty!

    Muggles, you have been warned.
