Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Act I, Scene 8

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

Act I, Scene 8

Dream, Hut-on-the-Rock

  • This scene is basically a re-enactment of Book 1, Chapter 4 when Hagrid shows up to retrieve Harry from the Dursleys. Remember that?
  • Except at the end of this scene, Voldemort's voice hisses "Haaarry Pottttter" (1.8.40). He should get that stutter checked.
