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

Painfully brilliant commentary on the meaning of love and happiness, as viewed through characters with different emotional and intellectual capacities. Some of the wittiest and most acerbic dialogue I've seen in a long time.
Quotes & Highlights
