Or there were FIVE DRAGONS guarding Barad-dur when Frodo the Halfling went there to challenge Sauron to single combat, and while he was there he tricked them into setting the tower on fire and blowing it up and only survived because an eagle happened to fly by at that very moment...
Wait... didn't the Battle of the Five Dragons take place in Dale. I could've sworn... :-p

For what it's worth, having the playwright/original troupe members originate in Dale could help explain why they know so little of the original story.
