In Arthurian legend, Merlin attempted to prepare a young boy to be the “once and future king”, a king who would bring peace to his people. But the peace that came was temporary, followed by great conflict. Did Merlin fail? What was the long-term effect of his efforts?
Merlin’s Effect Phase I is a one-act play for 11 actors which was written in 2013 by Mountaine Jonas (with the help of many friends), and produced and directed by Mountaine for 3 performances in Tennessee. Most of the classic characters were embodied in new and surprising ways – Merlin, Arthur, Archimedes the Owl, Vortigern, Uther, Igraine, Lancelot, Guinevere, Morgaine, Morgausse, Mordred, and Geoffrey of Monmouth.
Merlin’s Effect Phase II is NOW a series of Youtube videos – at http://www.youtube.com/user/
