The Hobbit – New Theatre, Cardiff

Review by Morgan Evan Hooper age 9

The Hobbit was great, especially Mr Bilbo Baggins, played by Peter Howe, who was amazing. I like the way he talks and acts, I don’t know how he does it. I know one thing, I could never do anything like that. He is my favourite character. He is really funny.

Gandalf, played by Christopher Robbie, was outstanding. I was shot down when he did his magic – it was brilliant!!
Gollum, played by Antony Gabriel, was really scary. Gollum is a slimy, creepy creature who was once a hobbit. I can’t believe that ring changed Gollum into that slimy, smelly monster.

I know many different versions of this story, for example The Hobbit book, the CD story and they are also making a film. This play was another great way of telling the story, written by JRR Tolkein.

At the end of the story, Thorin, played by Andrew Coppin, started to get obsessed with the treasure. It’s good to remember Thorin’s story: do not get obsessed with treasure otherwise something bad will always happen to you!!

All in all a very, very brilliant play – it was an AMAZING, GENIUS, OUTSTANDING play. The only way to improve it would be to make it a tiny bit shorter.
