POTTED POTTER takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into seventy hilarious minutes.

Created by double Olivier Award Best Entertainment nominees Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, the show is a must-see for Potter addicts and a great introduction to the series for anyone who’s ever wondered what all the fuss is about.

POTTED POTTER has played 30 weeks off-Broadway across two sold-out seasons, has had five West End runs, has enjoyed extensive UK and international tours, and has just embarked on a 2014 world tour including Mexico City, Ireland and Canada before reaching “Gloriously irreverent.

Clarkson and Turner first created POTTED POTTER in 2005 for an appearance at a London bookshop, as a five-minute entertainment for fans awaiting the release of the sixth book in the series. The show grew from there into a full-length stage production, first seen at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2006, and has since played a further four sold-out seasons in Edinburgh as well as sold-out seasons at the Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Comedy Festival and New Zealand Comedy Festival in 2009
