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

Very enjoyable play which provided ongoing laughter. The adult script was clever and brought back memories of Manhattan life. Well cast and superbly acted not only in speak but also facial expression. At first I was turned off by the set but after consideration and discussion with DH decided it truly captured the kitschy, tawdry, intended design. And the music was appropriate during scene changes.
A continual problem at this theatre is that some in the audience are unsophisticated and think they are at a movie theatre. Talking and rattling of wrappers is very annoying not only during the scene changes but also during the play itself. Perhaps a word at the beginning would serve well. It is embarrassing to have to correct adults. My 3 year old GD has better manners when attending a play.
