Alex Harvey directs Glen Berger's work, which begins as an "assistant acquisitions librarian finds a late book in the overnight slot and becomes determined to track down the offender... especially since the book is 113 years overdue. As his endeavors continue, he finds himself on a journey that unlocks ancient mysteries and moves him to new revelations."
The one-man work stars Alley Company member John Tyson as the librarian. Tyson has appeared in the Alley stagings of The Lieutenant of Inishmore, Arsenic and Old Lace, Death on the Nile, Treasure Island, Subject to Fits, Wait Until Dark, Black Comedy and The Pillowman.
Underneath the Lintel officially opens on the Neuhaus Stage March 26 and will play through April 20.
The creative team includes scenic and lighting designer Kevin Rigdon, costume designer Blair Gulledge and sound designer Daniel Baker with original compositions by Andy Statman and projection design by Clint Allen.
Underneath the Lintel enjoyed a healthy Off-Broadway run when it played 450 performances at the Soho Playhouse from 2001-2003. Tickets are available by visiting www.alleytheatre.org or by calling (713) 220-5700.
