Roll out the Balrog

Long, long ago in a galaxy not too far away there was a Tolkien Society dedicated, among other things, to butchering the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. At a Science Fiction convention in Sydney in 1988 they produced (despite many contenders for the title) the all time nadir of Tolkien-derivative works – Sauron, the Musical.

Not only was it a gross insult to the magnificent writing of the late Professor Tolkien it stole practically all its material from somewhere else. The music was stolen, the jokes were stolen, even the plot was stolen. Unfortunately the members of the Society were unable to steal any actors and were obliged to perform it themselves.

The Counsel for the Prosecution contacted me recently and asked if I had a copy available. Not content to share it with him I felt something this appalling should be inflicted on as many people as possible. To this end I have put the entire script on this web site.
