It is based on a new original story by Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany. The play is expected to premiere at London's Palace Theatre.
Thorne has written the play, which will be directed by Tiffany. It is the first play about Harry Potter.
Rowling has written seven Harry Potter novels, which have achieved global success and been turned into successful films.
