Underneath the Lintel: An Impressive Presentation of Lovely Evidences

October 10 - November 19, 2017
Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater

Written by Glen Berger
Directed by Steven Robman
Featuring Arye Gross

"This curiously funny drama made of life's most curious stuff is not one to be missed."  – The New York Times
"A theatrical miracle of its own! Powerfully human and ultimately sublime."  – Variety

When a reclusive librarian discovers a 113-year overdue book in the night slot, curiosity compels him to pursue the borrower. His search for answers leads to a worldwide, whirlwind journey, where he discovers instead the great mysteries of humanity. Called "powerfully human and ultimately sublime," Glen Berger's Underneath the Lintel reminds us that the joy is in the journey itself.
