Potted Potter is billed as taking up “the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven of JK Rowling's Harry Potter books (and a real-life game of quidditch) into 70 hilarious minutes”. Said to be fantastically funny, the show is a two-hander created by Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, two-time Olivier Award nominees for best entertainment. The show is apparently roaringly funny, even if you don’t know the difference between Dumbledore and Hufflepuff. Endless costume changes, great songs, innovative props plus a fire-breathing dragon (or, at least, a facsimile of one) make this perfect entertainment for anyone aged between six and 106.
