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?

 

HUNTER

(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.

 

ALADAR

Wow. Somebody’s well prepared.

 

HUNTER

I’ve had a year to plan it. You should leave now in case they send scouts.

 

ZIGZAG

Definitely! And, thanks!

 

(Hunter nods. The trio exits stage left. Hunter exits stage right.)

(Blackout)

 

SCENE 3

(No one on stage yet. Inside a cave. Big boulder in UL.)

 

(The trio enter quietly from Stage Right)

 

ZIGZAG

Keep moving. The Staff must be just down this way.

 

SPOOT

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.)

 

ORC GENERAL

Double trap the second door. Only single trap the first and third.

 

ORC WARRIOR

Yes, sir!

 

ORC GENERAL

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!

ORC WARRIOR

Yes, sir!

 

ORC GENERAL

Now, GET ON THOSE TRAPS! And use the BEST traps and hide them BETTER than EVER BEFORE. Now GO!

 

ORC WARRIOR

Yes, sir!

 

(Orc warrior runs off Stage Left)

 

ORC GENERAL

(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)

 

ZIGZAG

The second door is the one with the staff! Let’s move!

 

SPOOT

Yes, sir! Wait……. *ahem* *cough cough* Mages these days. Wait…….. *ahem* *cough cough* Ok, sure! There, that’s better!

 

(Trio exits stage left)

(Blackout)

 

SCENE 4

                                                                                    (In the cave still. 3 doors in Upstage center.
