Before Arthur and Guinevere sat on the throne, before Merlin wielded his staff and before anyone ever gathered around a round table, they were all students at the world renowned school for sorcery, knighthood, and ladyship…Avalon Academy. For generations the sorcery students and the knights in training enjoyed a passionate rivalry while the ladies kept to sidelines. All of that, however, is about to change. Family-friendly show.

MET-X will present a staged reading of Dorothy Parker’s’ Ladies of the Corridor. “Brilliant – and, I may say blood-curdling” – New York Herald Tribune.
