MARIA AND THE COMET: A quaker girl of the 19th century, the earthling Maria Mitchell studies the universe and is beloved by the stars who seek other earthlings from the audience and dance with them across the sky. The inquisitive and studious Maria fixes a chronometer when she is 12 years old.  Maria is also beloved by the Comet who is discovered by her in 1847.  Later she becomes a professor of Astronomy at Vassar College encouraging young people particularly girls, to study mathematics and science, even teaching some of them on stage!

THE ROUND TABLE: In a lively retelling of Arthurian legend, the hitherto unknown Merlina, sister of Merlin is very distressed by all the blood spilled on the earth in the 20th and 21st centuries.  She accompanies Nyme, the Lake of the Lake on a journey from the middle earth to our world today.  They surface first in 1995 on the 50th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. They flash back and forth revisiting the legends and bringing Excalibur the Sword of Right into the 21st century.  They try to find someone to fill the current Seat Perilous and bring peace to the world, finally accepting their own responsibility.
