The Hobbit - Short Play Version - 60 mins - USA ONLY


Edward Mast from J.R.R. Tolkien

Published by Dramatic Publishing

Large Mixed Cast
This shortened version (60 mins) of Tolkien's classic novel is a suspenseful, fast-moving journey through the sometimes dark, sometimes charming, always compelling world of Middle Earth

Bilbo Baggins is a comfortably well-off hobbit with a love for rousing adventure stories

Real adventures, however, are definitely not his cup of tea

So when Gandalf the Wizard knocks at Bilbo's door, bringing with him Thorin Oakenshield, 11 ragged looking dwarfs, and a contract for an adventure to recover the lost treasure of Lonely Mountain, Bilbo could not be less interested - at first

But Bilbo's love of a good story gets the better of him, and before he knows it, he is off on a perilous quest over mountain and under hill through caves and forest and slimy, dark places

"Ed Mast does an admirable job of transferring Tolkien's classic tale of dwarfs, magicians and dragons in Middle Earth to the stage and offers plenty of well-crafted dialogue for actors to have their way with" ~ Kansas City Star
