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

A uniformly excellent production of a sometimes difficult, clearly challenging--but ultimately rewarding--play. A very ambitious undertaking for community theater, but all at Unexpected Stage Company rose to--and were fully equal to--the challenge.
