J.R.R. Tolkein’s The Hobbit, Dramatized by Patricia Gray
Directed by Susan Harrocks
“A a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.” These were the first words
Oxford professor and author J.R.R. Tolkien scribbled on a blank examination paper when he was attempting to write a story for his children. Little did he realize that his children’s story about the adventures of a “halfling” would go
on to launch a worldwide print and cinematic phenomenon, Tolkien’s tales of Middle-Earth. And it all began with Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit of the peaceful land known as The Shire, who once upon a time went on an unexpected adventure. In our play, Bilbo has to leave the comfort of his home to recover an important treasure, and, in the spirit of the ages-old story of the “quest,” off we go with him on a fun and wonder-filled journey of intrigue and discovery.
