A reclusive librarian -- the sole character -- finds a book that is 123 years overdue. When he opens it and finds a ticket for a Chinese laundry in London, his curiosity compels him to redeem the ticket leading him to another clue that sends him around the world on a global quest to track down the book's original borrower in Underneath the Lintel. Played by Paul Morella, the Librarian uncovers a mystery that seems to transcend the ages, but are the results due to investigation or madness? Underneath the Lintel is a moving journey of self-discovery where faith and facts intersect. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
by Gerald Sibleyras
translated by Tom Stoppard
directed by John Vreeke
featuring Ralph Cosham, John Dow and Michael Tolaydo
Three soldiers in a Parisian veterans’ home pass the time with tales that are at once achingly funny and piercingly sad. With his rapier wit and dazzling use of language Tom Stoppard offers a brilliant new translation that mixes comic curmudgeonry, camaraderie and nostalgia. A smash hit when it premiered in Paris, Heroes received four Moliere nominations. The London production won the 2006 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.
