The Ladies of the Corridor

2004-2005 Production Senior Class Ladies of the Corridor

Senior Class Reader's Theatre Play

The Ladies of the Corridor is a sharply funny and wryly sympathetic look behind the closed doors of New York City's Hotel Marlow. Following the death of her husband, Lulu Ames moves into the hotel and immediately embarks on a romance with a much younger man. Mildred Tynan, another resident, walked out on an abusive husband and now finds herself alone with a sadistic stranger and on the brink of alcoholism. Grace Nichols lives down the hall. She keeps her middle-aged son tied to her apron strings with the threat of exposing a terrible secret. These women, along with several other colorful characters, cross paths in the corridor of this genteel establishment, where a skeleton is hung in every closet.
