Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings

Over the last fifty years, J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings has become the best known example of high fantasy literature, and the recent movies by Peter Jackson have attracted a new group of devotees. In celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of The Return of the King, this readers’ theatre production is presenting two sections of the story not included in the films. In the Houses of Healing, Aragorn is recognized by many as the rightful king of Gondor because of his ability to heal those who have been struck down by the evil Nazgúl. Consequently, the love story between Éowyn and Faramir comes to fruition as they recover from their life-threatening injuries and await the coronation of the king. Gandalf, Merry, and Pippin are among the favorite characters who appear in these compelling scenes.
