All the books in sixty minutes? Watch comic storytelling duo Dan and Jeff take on the ultimate challenge.

This brilliantly funny show features all your favourite characters, and even a game of Quidditch. 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.

At Edinburgh performances, whilst teaser references are made to book seven, no major plot points are revealed, so you're safe to come along even if you haven't got to the end yet!

'The task facing performers Dan and Jeff is to recreate six of the teen wizard’s adventures (with bonus seventh book teaser) in under an hour – an assignment akin to trying to squeeze the contents of Niagara Falls into a teacup. The pair wisely opt to take as irreverent an approach to the source material as possible, dipping into a rag bag collection of scruffy props and silly wigs to breathe goofy life into some of the epic series’ most memorable set pieces. In this version Harry battles threadbare giant serpents, a feeble horn-tailed dragon, not to mention He Who Must Not Be Named. The audience is even invited to take part in an inspired mass game of Quidditch. What the show lacks in budget it makes up for in humour and invention. Highly recommended for fans and detractors of JK Rowling’s oeuvre alike.' **** The List
