Pages: 57 pgs
Cast: Flexible cast of 15, extras, doubling

Adapted from the novel by Mark Twain. Sir Boss, a computer wiz, is transported back in time to the age of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. After proving his "magic" is more powerful than Merlin's, Sir Boss begins to modernize Camelot. The new TV station has Morgan La Faye as chief newscaster and Merlin as the "predictor" of the weather; the Knights of the Round Table form a basketball team, the Camelot Pacers; and everyone is getting e-mail. All goes well until King Arthur and Sir Boss travel through Camelot, disguised as peasants, so the King can see how the common people really live. Morgan and Merlin take this opportunity to create mischief by having the two sold into slavery. The rescue and return of Sir Boss climaxes the play, capturing Twain's humor, inventiveness and dark undercurrents as well.
