Harry Potter and the Cursed Child dominates Olivier Awards

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child emerged as a big winner at the 2017 Olivier Awards, with wins in nine categories. The two-part play – a follow-up to J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series of books – won in nine of the 11 categories it was nominated in at the ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Cursed Child won Best New Play, Best Actor (Jamie Parker), Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Anthony Boyle), Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Noma Dumezweni) and Best Director (John Tiffany). It also won in the Best Lighting Design, Best Costume Design, Best Sound Design and Best Set Design categories. Kenneth Branagh won the Special Award, for his outstanding contribution to British theatre and gave an inspiring speech in which he encouraged people to keep dreaming.

“People sometimes ask me how I do it, and here’s the answer – we do it. I was inspired to dream and my advice to everyone is: dream big. There are no mistakes only lessons.

“We can help to change the world just a little bit. I’ve seen the evidence. Shakespeare was right: we are such stuff that dreams are made of. Keep making stuff keep dreaming,” Branagh said.
