It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
The script unravelled in a series of dialogue between characters, rather than through an omniscient narrator. This helped one imagine how everything would possibly play out on the stage, as if you were watching the performance live. I loved how the play showed how the impact of living in a parent’s shadow could cause children to struggle and act irrationally from the expectations that they are expected to live up to, and how a child can feel disconnected from their parents due to this. My favourite part about this entire play is the fact that it features my one true, and most loved, character Scorpius Malfoy. But honestly? Scorpius has been my favourite Harry Potter character of all time since the end of Deathly Hallows. And yes. You did read that right. It’s hard to say why I had so much love for a character that was hardly a character in the series. But alas, he was, and I was stubborn to change that fact. Scorpius was honestly everything that I had hoped for and more. I mean… just look at him? Ain’t he the cutest. *clears throat* Right. Sorry. Back to the review.
P.S. Scorpius Malfoy and Rose Granger-Weasley are my OTP <3
