Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Act I, Scene 19

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

Act I, Scene 19

Ministry of Magic, Hermione's Office

  • In the office, Scorpius as Harry teases Albus/Ron for kissing his aunt about a hundred times.
  • Now they need to get to business: find the Time-Turner.
  • Hermione has set up a series of puzzles hiding the Time-Turner, which seems like a bad security system…but we're not the Minister of Magic, so who are we to judge?
  • The teens quickly solve the puzzles and find themselves in possession of a Time-Turner.
  • Albus says, "Our journey has only just begun" (1.19.91).
  • And the scene goes black.
