SYNOPSIS: A narrator introduces the audience to a time long past, where young academic-minded people were mired in an educational culture that didn't meet their needs. Arising from the mass of mediocrity is Arthur, who assumed his rightful destiny as King of the Students when, as a lad, he laid hands on Excalibur, a text of extraordinary length that he alone could read. Arthur travels the land in search of other gifted students to join him at Cramalot, a place where they can read, write and share ideas—preferably without being shut into medieval lockers. Along the way, Arthur and his growing band of brothers (and a sister or two, courtesy of Title IX), are aided by the Lady of the Lake, the famous Student-Assistance Counselor, and are charged by the Supreme Being? The Superintendent of Schools, with securing the Holy Grail, an Ivy League diploma. Arthur and his Knights of the Library Table learn many valuable lessons along the way, and poke more than their share of fun at students, teachers, parents, administrators, and, well, the state of education in general. (As if it isn't funny enough on its own.)
