The Edward King House Senior Center announced the audition dates for its upcoming fall production of Glen Berger’s Underneath the Lintel under the direction of Abby Adams. 

A one-man or woman show that revolves around a sole character—the Librarian— who embarks on a quest to find out who anonymously returned a library book that is 113 years overdue. A clue scribbled in the margin of the book and an unclaimed dry-cleaning ticket then take him or her on a mysterious adventure that spans the globe and the ages. 

The show is scheduled to run from November 17th to the 19th in the Other Space at the Edward King House.

Auditions will be conducted on September 13th through the 15th by appointment only.  Anyone interested in the role, needing more information or wanting to schedule an audition should email the EKHSC at
