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

The play is as described - you very much feel as though you have entered someone's dining room. The play is relatively short and the time goings very quickly as you become completely engrossed in their story. I really enjoyed it and thought the acting was excellent.
That Hopey Changey Thing
It’s 7 pm on the eve of Obama’s first midterm election, and Barbara’s hosting dinner for the family at her Rhinebeck, NY, home. Over the course of a meal, the Apples delve into lost family history, the social meaning of manners, and the fragile state of the American body politic. _
Sweet and Sad _
One year later, Barbara hosts a lunch on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. As the family reflects on the changes the last year—and decade—have brought, they find themselves talking about hope, art, and remembrance.
