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

My husband and I enjoyed it. It kept our attention the whole time in spite of its length - approximately 2 3/4 hours, including a ten minute intermission. The actress playing Hedda was too old and somewhat masculine for the part she played and her performance seemed to lack subtlety/complexity. We enjoyed Tessman though he seemed a bit like a character right out of the Simpsons show - the goody too shoo neighbor (Ned Flanders) - even looked the part. Still all said - a very enjoyable evening.
Ibsen’s place in modern drama is without parallel. He was a visionary, a harbinger of the modern dilemma who helped create modern theatre. His plays such as A Doll’s House, Peer Gynt, and Hedda Gabler set the tone for much of what happens on today’s stages. And, by employing Irish playwright Friel’s 2008 adaptation, SCENA highlights these modern aspects of the play as well as celebrates another great international playwright.
The cast of Hedda Gabler includes accomplished D.C. actors Kerry Waters, Lee Ordeman, Rena Cherry Brown, Mary Suib, Eric Lucas, Danielle Davy and Jim Jorgensen.
