Arthurian legends are reborn in the Civil War era in this addition to the author's Pendragon cycle of plays. In the autumn of 1864, Major Pendragon and some of his men wander in a dark forest, unable to find their way back to the Union Army. They encounter a young man who wants to become a soldier, a tattered revival tent where a demented preacher speaks gibberish while his daughter operates a pump organ, and an old man fishing near a haunted mansion who leads them to the Holy Grail. This eerie play offers new insights into characters also seen in Armitage, Green Man, and Sorceress. This play earned the author a Playwriting Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.
