A fantasy-themed play. Has been selected by a playwright who has had a play on broadway as the best in the class.
You mentioned a side entrance?
(Calmly) Yes, I did. Go back around there (points to Stage Left) and around the side. Follow a path of footsteps I set straight into a small cave. Follow that cave and you’ll be behind the traps AND behind the army.
Wow. Somebody’s well prepared.
I’ve had a year to plan it. You should leave now in case they send scouts.
Definitely! And, thanks!
(Hunter nods. The trio exits stage left. Hunter exits stage right.)
(No one on stage yet. Inside a cave. Big boulder in UL.)
(The trio enter quietly from Stage Right)
Keep moving. The Staff must be just down this way.
Shhhhhh! I hear someone! (A faint voice is heard) Orcs!
(The trio runs behind big boulder. As soon as they get behind it, ORC GENERAL and ORC WARRIOR enter Stage Right.)
Double trap the second door. Only single trap the first and third.
I’m surprised those awful humans haven’t sent a rescue party yet. I heard those stupid trolls didn’t find out until two days ago. Bah!
Now, GET ON THOSE TRAPS! And use the BEST traps and hide them BETTER than EVER BEFORE. Now GO!
(Orc warrior runs off Stage Left)
(Looks to audience) Warriors these days. (A “Yes, sir!” is heard from off stage)
(Orc General exits Stage Right. The trio comes out from behind rock)
The second door is the one with the staff! Let’s move!
Yes, sir! Wait……. *ahem* *cough cough* Mages these days. Wait…….. *ahem* *cough cough* Ok, sure! There, that’s better!
(Trio exits stage left)
(In the cave still. 3 doors in Upstage center.
