His old nemesis Draco Malfoy was also present at the train station as he brings his own child off. Both Harry and Albus begin to realize that darkness is bound to come out unexpectedly.

The play is bound to be excellent as John Tiffany's brilliance rubs on the production. Tiffany is famous for his rendition of "The Glass Menangerie" and won a Tony Award for "Once".
