Harry Potter and the Cursed Child hits the London stage next summer - but it begs the question: who is the 'child'??

Since the story takes place during Harry's pre-Hogwarts time with the Dursleys, it seems only logical that the cursed child is Dudley. "What's this?" you say. "Dudley was never magically cursed during that time." No, he wasn't magically cursed, but he was cursed in the way his parents brought him up (i.e. overindulgence with food and gifts, no discipline for inappropriate behavior, no set boundaries, etc.).

I disagree because JK Rowling said that it's definitely NOT a prequel.

There were events of Harry's life with the Dursleys which were briefly mentioned, but not expounded upon, in chapter 2 of PS/SS, chapter 2 of POA, and chapter 24 of OOTP.

I personally think that it would be Lily Luna or Albus Severus. From what we know about Albus Severus, he has his worries about going to Hogwarts and about his house. I am also reading a wonderfully written fanfic on fanfiction.net where Lily has a curse and it is along the lines of what could potentially happen

Whoever it is, I just hope that one day it will come to America so I can see it.

on the pottermore website cursed child is advertised as the 'eighth book' of the narrative so I think the cursed child is a child of Harry and Ginny or even a child of Hermonie and Ron.

i believe who the Cursed Child is is quite obvious. It's Albus Potter like Goblinfrog stated. I think the real question is Why.

I believe he'll be called the Cursed Child because he's the only son of the Chosen One that will end up probably in Slytherin defying all odds. He won't actually be cursed, but maybe he'll think he is? Maybe he'll have a hard time adapting ? (as we can see in the prologue he has some reservations about where he'll be places and still believes the misconception that all Slytherins are bad - which is NOT true).

I think it will play along those lines... Ideas?

I think it will definitely be Albus Severus Potter, although I don't think that he will be literally cursed. I think that he has just been 'cursed' with the weight of his father's fame on his shoulders and being expected to live up to the Potter legacy.
