The Tolkien trilogy in just 3,600 seconds
On Monday 27th September at 7.30pm The Lincoln Theatre Royal will host Charles Ross’s funny and impressive show titled ‘One Man Lord of the Rings’ in which he recreates the enchanting world of Middle-earth, armed with nothing more than a pair of elbow pads and his outrageous imagination.
No props or costumes are required as Ross hurtles through the Tolkien trilogy – The Fellowship Of The Ring, The Two Towers and The Return Of The King – in just 3,600 seconds of unbelievable kinetic entertainment.
Like many Lord of the Rings fans, Canadian actor, playwright and self-proclaimed ‘professional geek’, Charles Ross fell in love with Tolkein’s trilogy at an early age.
When it was announced that Peter Jackson would adapt the stories for film, Charles was again among many who felt excitement and worry about the film. Charles asked himself ‘would he screw it up?’ ‘would someone stupid play Gandalf?’ and Charles believes ‘Thankfully no, and no.’
‘The films are high quality cinema and Ross is high quality entertainment… 5 stars for unbelievable talent.’ –Edinburgh Guide
‘Book fast – it will be a hot ticket. 5 stars’ – www.whatsonstage.com
‘A right proper fangasm’ – National Student magazine
‘If you liked The Lord of the Rings trilogy, you’ll love Charlie Ross’ version – and if you didn’t, well, at least his is shorter’ – Sir Ian McKellen
If you’ve seen the films, read the books and named your first-born Frodo, don’t miss Ross’ zany take on the ever-popular epic saga.
