Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Act I, Scene 18

By Jack Thorne, based on a story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne

Act I, Scene 18

Ministry of Magic, Corridor

  • Albus as Ron, Delphi as Hermione, and Scorpius as Harry almost bump into the real Hermione and Harry.
  • Delphi and Scorpius hide while Albus as Ron attempts to distract the real Hermione.
  • Ron Weasley is basically a manchild, so it's easy for a fifteen-year-old to pretend to be him.
  • He throws Hermione off by saying he wants another baby and kissing her a lot.
  • She leaves. We guess another baby isn't in their future.
