MERLYN: Hmmm! Let me think about it. (WART exits) (to himself) Hmm .. this could be harder than I thought!
WART: (WART Returns with the wood – loads it on the fire) OK, now how do we light it?
MERLYN: Leave it me, stand back. (MERLYN points his stick at the fire and says) ‘IGNIS LITICUS’ – (the fire lights up)
WART: Whoa! That’s a neat trick! Can I have a go?
MERLYN: No you can’t … Arthur.
WART: (Aside) Oh, my! He’s so old he doesn’t even remember my name, this is not a good start!! (Aloud to MERLYN but politely) Er… it’s not Arthur Mr Merlyn, it’s Wart, they call me Wart.
