Rowling said on her Twitter feed that the new play was the result of a collaboration between herself and writer Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany.

“I don’t want to say too much more, because I don’t want to spoil what I know will be a real treat for fans,” she said on Twitter. “However, I can say that it is not a prequel!”

Rowling is one of the world’s best-selling authors. Her seven “Harry Potter” novels have sold more than 450 million copies around the world, and spawned an eight-part film franchise that grossed more than $7 billion at the worldwide box office.
