The role of the protagonist has yet to be cast, but BAFTA award winner Stuart Brennan will be playing Harry's brother Theo. Houdini will tour to stages throughout the United Kingdom. Tickets go on sale starting May 6, and the production will hold its premiere at the Stoke-on-Trent Repertory Theatre September 9, 2013. The synopsis of the show can be read here, and below.

If any of you Leaky UK people do attend this play, please let us know how fun it was to see Evanna on stage! I do hope the play is a success. She looks a bit like a vixen with her red hair in this photo.

It sounds interesting. Finally a show that one of the potter actress/actor are in that I’d like to see and I can’t see it. I hope it’s made into a movie and we can see it w/her in it.
