Drama Timun Emas

Act 1
Narrator : Once upon a time, in a place deep inside the forest, there was a green
giant named ButoIjo and a sacred hermit. They were best friends since they were
toddlers. One day, the hermit came to the grotto to see his best friend.
Hermit : Is anyone inside? [Walks inside the grotto]
ButoIjo : I’m here.
Hermit : There you are my best friend, what are you doing?
ButoIjo : Eating. Isn’t it obvious?
Hermit : Oh… I see. What are you eating?
ButoIjo : [No response, just continue eating]
Hermit : You’re so annoying! Can I have some?

ButoIjo : [Turns his body away, not willing to share his food with the hermit]
Hermit : [Angry] As usual, you never share me your foodwith me though I always
shared mine with you! You stingy giant! I loathe you!
ButoIjo : As if I care! [Continue eating]
Hermit : Someday your greed will come back to haunt you! You will regret it! I’m leaving!
[Leaves the grotto with anger]

Act 2
Narrator : One day, there was a pleasant couple. They lived in a village near the
forest. They lived happily. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any children
yet. Everyday they prayed to God for a child.
Mother : Oh God… please give us a child. I promise I will always protect my
child. Please answer our prayer. Thank you God.
Narrator : The green giant, ButoIjo, coincidentally passed by the couple’s house.
He heard what they were praying for.
ButoIjo : Whoa…ha…ha…ha! I heard that!

Mother : [gasps] Oh my God! W-Who are you?
ButoIjo : I’m ButoIjo.
Father : [comes toward his wife] What’s with the noise? Who is that, honey?
Mother : Oh my husband, ButoIjo is in front of our house. I’m scared. He will
kill both of us!
ButoIjo : Whoa…ha…ha…ha… I’m not going to kill you. But I will fulfill your
request to have a child.
Father : You are just joking, aren’t you?
ButoIjo : No…No… I’m serious, yes, I’m really serious. If you don’t believe me
it doesn’t matter.
Mother : All right… All right. My husband, let’s see what he can do to help us.
ButoIjo : [Gives the seeds] Look, here are some cucumber seeds. Plant these
seeds, then you’ll get a daughter.
Father : Do you mean it? It’s so easy.
ButoIjo : Yes, I mean it. But remember, on her seventeenth birthday, I’ll come
back to take the girl.
Mother : Oh, husband… please I want a child! Let’s try his offer!
Father : But… Oh well, if you insist, I’ll take his offer.
Mother : [Bows down] Oh, thank you, husband! Thank you a lot, ButoIjo!
ButoIjo : Whoa…ha…ha…ha. See you again seventeen years from now, humans.
And remember your promise. [Go away]

Act 3
Narrator : The next day, the couple planted the seeds. Months later, a golden
cucumber grew in the yard. The cucumber was getting bigger and
bigger each day.
Mother : Look! Look! The cucumber grew very big! It’s so fantastic!
Father : Yeah, you are right. What a very big cucumber.
Mother : It’s ripe already. Does it work? How can this big thing give us a
Father : I don’t know. Don’t ask me.
Mother : I think it’s time for us to open it up. I wonder what makes it so big.
Don’t you think so?
Father : Yes. Let’s cut it in two.
Narrator :Carefully, they cut the cucumber in two. To their surprise, they found
a beautiful baby girl inside the cucumber. How joyful they were.
Mother : [gasps] Oh my goodness! There is a baby girl inside this cucumber! Is it
for real? Or am I dreaming?
Father : Yes it is. You want me to pinch you to prove it?
Mother : Err… No thanks. [Holds the baby out] This baby is so cute! God, thank
you so much! Thank you so much!
Father : What will we name her?
Mother : I think I will name her Timun Mas, husband. Because she came from
the cucumber and she is cute. That name really suits her, doesn’t it?
Father  : I agree with you.

Act 4
Narrator : Years passed by and Timun Mas grew into a lovely girl. Her parents
were very proud of her but their hearts were heavy when they
remembered their promise to ButoIjo. The couple then remembered
that there was a sacred hermit living inside the forest. So they went
there for the help.
Mother : [Knocking the door] Excuse us.
Hermit : [Comes toward the door and opens it] May I ask who you are?
Mother : My name is Sarni. This is my husband. We both are farmers living in
the village near the forest.
Hermit : What do you want from me?
Father : We need your help.
Hermit : Okay, please come in. Tell me the whole story.
Narrator : The couple told the hermit about their wish and how ButoIjo fulfilled it.
And also the promise they made with the Giant. The hermit listened to
them carefully as he nodded for the umpteenth time, until the couple
finished their story.
Hermit : As expected, ButoIjo did a horrible thing. His greed
explains everything. We need to do something.
Mother : Please, good Hermit, help us. Don’t let ButoIjo take our one dearest
daughter. She’s been with us for seventeen years.
Father : My wife is right, good hermit. What shall we do?
Hermit : Please be still and stop crying. Look, here is a bundle. There are four
things and messages inside. They will help Timun Mas run away from
the giant.
Father : [Takes the bundle] Are you sure they will work?
Hermit : Believe me, it will. ButoIjo must be punished for his action.
Mother : Thank you very much, good hermit!

Act 5
Narrator : It so happened that on the day of TimunMas’s seventeenth birthday, Buto
Ijo came for the couple’s promise.
ButoIjo : Whoa…ha…ha... Hey, peasant, where is your lovely daughter? I am
here to pick her up. Remember the promise you said to me!
Father : Please be patient, ButoIjo. Timun Mas, my daughter, is playing in the
ButoIjo : What a load of baloney! I know you’re lying! But never mind, I’ll find her by
myself! [Turns away to find Timun Mas]
Father : I’m glad he’s gone. Timun Mas, come here, child.
TimunMas: Yes, daddy, I’m coming. Who’s that?
Mother : He is ButoIjo, the green giant. For some reason, he’s looking for you.
I’m sure he’ll come back here soon.
TimunMas: Oh my God, what’ll he do to me?
Father : Listen to me, Timun Mas, all you have to do is run away from him.
[Gives the bundle to Timun Mas] Take this bundle with you. It contains
chili seeds, salt, cucumber seeds, and shrimp paste.
TimunMas: What should I do with these?
Father : Throw each of them when the giant gets closer to you. These will help
you get away from the giant.
TimunMas: What about you, mom and dad?
Mother : Don’t worry about us. Oh my God, the giant is coming! Now, run,
Timun Mas! Run as fast as you can! Please be careful!
TimunMas: Thank you, mom and dad! You too please take care of yourselves!
[Runs away]

Act 6
Narrator : After that, the giant chased Timun Mas and he was getting closer and
closer. Timun Mas then took a handful of salt from the bundle. She
threw the salt and magically a wide sea appeared between them.
TimunMas: Take that you evil giant!
ButoIjo: [Smirks] Ho…ho…ho. You think you can run away from me! You will never escape! Whoa…ha…ha…ha. Come here! I’ll get you! [Swims through the sea]
TimunMas: Oh my God! How did he do that?? I didn’t know he could swim!
ButoIjo: Wait for me, you little girl!
TimunMas: Oh no! He’s getting closer to me. There’s no other choice! Take this, giant!
Narrator: And then she took the chili seeds and threw them at the giant. Suddenly the seeds grew into some trees and trapped him. The next thing he knew, the trees grew thorns as sharp as knives.
ButoIjo: Ouch…ouch! How in the world did these trees grow thorns?? It hurts so much!
TimunMas: Take that, evil creature!
ButoIjo: So, you want to play with me, huh? You’ll regret this when you lose!
TimunMas: Oh no! He is still chasing me! I must run faster!
Narrator: Once again, the giant almost caught TimunMas. So, TimunMas took the cucumber seeds and threw them onto the ground.
ButoIjo: What now? What’s this? Cucumbers are everywhere! They look delicious! I guess it’s better for me to have appetizers first.
TimunMas: Hosh…hosh…Oh, I’m out of breath. But the giant was eating the cucumbers. This is my chance to run away!
ButoIjo: [Yawns] Whoaaaah…I’m very sleepy. I want to sleep first. After that I’ll find TimunMas. Wait for me, girl, I’ll come and make you my dinner tonight!
Narrator: TimunMas kept on running as fast as she could. But soon she was very tired herself. And things were getting worse as the giant had woken up.
ButoIjo: Whoaaah…I’m fresh again! Hey, TimunMas, you can’t run away from me. I’ll get you! Hohoho…
TimunMas: Oh, God, he has woken up! What shall I do, God? Please help me!
ButoIjo: So, you want to play hide and seek, don’t you? Where are you? C’mon, c’mon little girl…come to daddy.
TimunMas: God! Please help me!
ButoIjo: There you are, little girl! One more step and I’ll catch you!
TimunMas: This is my last hope! [Throws something] Take that, ButoIjo!
Narrator: Desperately she then threw her last weapon, the shrimp paste. Magically, the paste turned into a big swamp.
ButoIjo: Oh no, what’s this? It’s so sticky and smells fishy! TimunMas…! I swear I will swallow you as soon as I catch you!
Narrator: The giant fell into the swamp but his hands almost reached TimunMas. Suddenly the swamp pulled him to the bottom and his hands lost her.
TimunMas: Finally I’m free!
ButoIjo: Oh, no…help! Help me! Someone help me!
TimunMas: No one will help you, giant, because you’re a bad person.
ButoIjo: Please help me…!! I swear I won’t do anything bad again! I promise!
Hermit: [comes out of the blue] Are you sure about your words?
ButoIjo: Arggh…Hermit! Finally you come! Please help me!
TimunMas: [shocked] Who are you?
Hermit: [Turns his face to TimunMas] Ah, did I scare you? Let me introduce myself. I am a hermit. So just call me hermit. You don’t need to know my real name. And this giant is my best friend.
ButoIjo: Yes, I am his best friend! Please get me out of here!
Hermit: [Turns back to ButoIjo] I will help you out if you promise you won’t do bad things again and stop being a greedy person.
ButoIjo: Yes, I promise! I promise I will be a good person! You can count on me!
Narrator: Finally, the good hermit helped ButoIjo, his best friend. As soon as the giant got out of the swamp, the swamp disappeared. Then the giant apologized to TimusMas as well as to the hermit. Fortunately they both forgave him. From then on, ButoIjo lived as a good giant and always helped the peasants with their fields. As for TimunMas, she lived happily with her parents with no fear anymore.

-The End-
