Can someone make a table of when each scene Harry Potter and the Cursed Child takes place?

When a book or movie takes place in a specific time in the future, I try to keep track of when it takes place so I can read and watch it then. I understand that Cursed Child spans multiple years starting with Albus's first day of school in 2017 or so, and that a lot of the drama is in the 2020-2021 school year. I hope I didn't miss it.

In addition, I know that Cursed Child shows some scenes in the '80s and '90s, and I'd like to have an easy reference for when I want to reread a particular section.

  • @Valorum- It's pretty clear when you read the book. I checked every chapter and got the date or month from them. You can check the script.
