Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Part Two picks up directly where the first play left off. After attempting to rectify their mistakes and change history once more, Albus Potter does not emerge from their time-travel and Scorpius Malfoy finds himself trapped in a hideous alternative reality where Lord Voldemort rules and Harry Potter is dead. He gets a glimpse of what life would be like in this terrifying world and Scorpius realizes that he needs to enlist the help Professor Snape and now-wanted rebels, Hermione and Ron, to go back in time once more and change the world. As time goes back and forth, and realities constantly shift from one to another, it becomes a race against time to secure the future and stop the dark arts rising to power once more. Not everyone is who they seem and, sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places. Gripping, terrifying, and visually astounding, this play finishes off the Harry Potter story and leaves audiences on the edge of their seats.
