A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court
Lancelot, Guinevere, and Merlin come tumbling your way in this contemporary adaptation of the satirical tale from America?s favorite humorist. Wander with Twain as he time travels to 6th-century England through the eyes of Hank Morgan of Hartford, Connecticut, who is unexpectedly transported back to the time of legendary King Arthur. Hank astonishes the Middle Age with modern technology and pop culture. These tricks from the future initially advance and improve King Arthur?s Court, but society ultimately struggles to evolve 1,300 years into the future. Jeffrey Hatcher?s adaptation of Twain?s romp exposes the foibles and fortes of both ages, leading audiences to question and laugh at themselves and the principles of the 21st century.

Deirdre of the Sorrows – a Play
"Deirdre of the Sorrows" is a three-act play, written by the Irish playwright John Millington Synge. It was first performed at the Abbey Theatre by the Irish National Theatre Society in 1910. The play is based on Irish Mythology, in particular the myths concerning Deirdre and Conchobar. The work was unfinished at the author's death in 1909, but was completed by William Butler Yeats and Synge's fianc?e, Molly Allgood. Edmund John Millington Synge (1871 - 1909) was an Irish poet, prose writer, and playwright. He was an influential figure in the Irish Literary Revival and co-founded the Abbey Theatre. Many antiquarian books such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
