I’m teaching summer school, as often happens this time of year, only this summer I have the pleasure of teaching one of my favorite courses, “Arthurian Legends,” for our M.Ed. program. We cover the entire history—highlights at any rate—of the origins and development of the legend and literary manifestations of King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table, from Roman era Britain through the present, and try to figure out its ageless appeal.

Thus, I’m always looking for new versions of these timeless tales, and today I came across a new theatrical production, The Arthur Cycle, by Jeff Berryman. Coming someday to a stage near you, perhaps.

What’s your favorite story about King Arthur?
