Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Recap: Part Two -- 25/05/17

Note: In case anyone’s interested, just this part alone is my longest ever recap. In total, both parts of this recap reach almost 21,000 words. I hope this is enough detail for you all! 

I’m not going to lie. After Wednesday night I felt really weird. Not unhappy, just odd. On Wednesday it felt like I was going to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but then it was just so different on Wednesday night, and there were so many things that I was apprehensive about for Part Two, that I simply didn’t know what to expect yesterday.

It’s weird sitting in a familiar theatre, about to watch a play with a script you know back to front, and characters you know inside out, and feel that you have no idea what is about to happen, or what to expect. I was nervous, a little apprehensive, and desperately in need of a hug, which @aberorca kindly provided.

But then it began, and all my fears and worries were allayed. I feel so full of joy and excitement right now. That was really great, and some of the scenes are already my favourite versions of those scenes.

If this is what an ass kicking from John Tiffany does for people, then maybe we all need one of those in our lives. It seems to inspire great things.

I’m going to start by reassessing some of the characters, and giving some impression of the characters we only saw in Part Two. Then we’ll get down to the detail (of which I’m not sure how much there’ll be, because my brain spent most of the show screaming with euphoric relief).


David is quite literally everything you want in a Snape. He was quiet in a menacing way, full of suppressed emotion, with just the right touch of humour. I enjoyed everything about his performance.


James Phoon’s Craig might be the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen. He sounds terrifyingly similar to Jeremy in some scenes (which I don’t think is deliberate), and he was just pretty great.


Rupert looks so young as Cedric, but he still exudes the same heroic goodness that Milligan always did. He really blew me away in the few seconds he had. It was such a touching scene.


You think you’ve seen all there is to Annabel’s Delphi, but then she captures the boys and attains her full power, and she reaches maximum creep mode. This Delphi is Bellatrix all over: laughing hysterically at the boys’ pain, revelling in mayhem, actually licking her lips when she sees she’s causing fear, like she loves the taste of it. She’s brutal and awful and gross.


This Draco is impressive and powerful, but so broken and afraid. He does things and hates himself for them. He’s terrified of the possibility of sending himself, and more importantly his son, back to Voldemort’s world. His grief seems to ache. He’s become such a good man. And as well as the weight of the serious moments, he’s incredibly funny too.


Sweet, funny, full of pain just like his father, but somehow still in love the world around him. He absolutely adores his dad, and he loves his best friend. He wouldn’t hurt a fly and he’s disgusted by the idea that any version of himself could cause pain.


Harry is so open to Albus, so warm towards him, so intent to listen. When he’s told to ‘be honest to those you love, show them your pain’ he really takes it to heart. He’s heartbroken with guilt over the people who’ve died on his behalf. I loved the tone that Jamie brought to him in this act.


I’m going to be honest, I’m still not entirely sure who Albus is, but in a really exciting way. In Part Two there were flashes of a genuinely funny, awkward, ridiculous Albus. An Albus who desperately cares about the people around him. An Albus who adores his best friend and his father. An Albus who could be so many things. Losing the establishing half of Albus’s character makes it difficult to assess, but I’m so excited by the possibility of Theo’s Albus, and I’m jealous of anyone who gets to see him do a really good Part One in the next month, cause I think that’s where you’ll find the heart of him.

And now to the detail.

Thieves Among Us (3/5)

Let Jon have his armies and his devoted wildlings and the love of their people, she thinks. Let him have his dragon queen. She’s in possession of a secret, tragic as it may be, but at least it’s entirely her own. For Sansa, that’s more than enough. It has to be. Rated M; inspired by content from S7. Previous chapters can be found here.

Sansa’s eyes dawned with realization while she stared back at him, her face a kaleidoscope of surprise and panic that burst wide open before swallowing itself up again as she recovered from his unexpected appearance.  

“Hello, Jon,” she greeted evenly. Sansa may have had the sense to speak first, but her tone was distant—as distant as it had been when she’d spoken to him on the rampart. It was like she had thrown ice water over him, jolting him out of his dazed bewilderment. The fact that she sounded so casual, as if her presence wasn’t anything strange to ponder over whatsoever, only set him off the edge just a little further.

mc donalds/ lab partner/ elevator meme with JRR Tolkein, Victor Hugo, and Franz Kafka. language barrier not an issue in this scenario; you can communicate with and understand the latter two as well as you would be able to communicate with and understand a native english speaker from your own country, don't ask how, this is a hypothetical question

Oh god. This took me ages in pART because I would not want to be stuck in a lift with any of these men. It’s already been pointed out that Hugo would probably take his clothes off, it’s a Romantic thing, and like: no. Kafka’s going to be freaking the fuck out - you know what, he’d probably be the most bearable, maybe? But also I’d have to live with the fact that I trapped Franz Kafka in a lift for ten hours. Like, not directly but definitely As A Result Of My Choices. He’d be falling apart and I’d be apologising and we’d both be wracked with guilt and it’d be a tremendous mess is what I’m saying. I guess this means I have to go with J.R.R., who is presumably going to be slightly patronising and 1950s-male-professorish at me while I try to avoid at any point letting slip that I mostly consider his magnum opus to be a beautiful and touching gay love story padded out unnecessarily with a lot of battles and camping. 

This leaves me with a a couple of bad choices. I guess Hugo can train me in my McDonald’s job. He’ll probably begin by giving me a history of the concept of fast food, and build from there. Maybe on like day 4 we’ll start talking about chips in particular and specific terms and possibly by the second week we’ll be actually, like. Preparing things. 

This leaves Kafka for my lab partner. Things are going to get in-ter-es-ting.

Just A Kiss (AU: L/J)

James Potter’s laughter rings out across the aisle of the small church, and Lily can’t help smiling privately to herself at the sound. When she’d first met him she’d thought his near constant bantering a reflection of an inability to be serious, and his brash sense of humor had annoyed more than entertained her. However, as they’d been thrown together more than usual over the last year, she’d come to find that he was quick to laugh simply because he was easily amused—most often by his own terrible jokes, to be sure—and that there was indeed something infectious about his glee.
