I suggest you not to read anything at all about the content of this play because one information might already be too much and could ruin certain surprises and "WTF" moments for you!
The only two important things to know beforehand are:
IT IS A SCRIPT NOT A NOVEL
IT PLAYS 19 YEARS AFTER THE BATTLE OF HOGWARTS aka it continues right where the 7th book finished.
MY READING EXPERIENCE

I had no problems at all with reading it as a script. It made it an even quicker and more intense read for me. But I genereally don't mind reading screenplays but actually enjoy that.
But I think one should definitely be aware of that writing form before reading it!
