Nineteen years after Harry Potter led a teenage rebellion against entrenched prejudice and an inept government response, Harry Potter finds himself the leader of Magical Law Enforcement, struggling to connect with at least one young Hogwarts student. Meanwhile, Draco Malfoy, teen Death Eater and bigot, has managed to raise a sweet nerdy Harry Potter fanboy. Come join a discussion about how Cursed Child functions as a deconstruction of the Harry Potter books as it shows our teen heroes and villains having to face the daunting prospect of growing up and trying not to repeat their own mistakes with the next generation.
