On the Doorstep


2005

Op de drempel (On the Doorstep) is the Dutch translation of the theatre monologue Underneath the Lintel by the American author Glen Berger. On an ordinary, miserable morning a librarian in the Dutch town of Hoofddorp makes a shocking find... a book that is returned 113 years late! And what's more, in the overnight slot! Determined to discover the wrongdoer, the decent librarian follows a trace of clues: from a musical in London to a scabious dog in Berlin; and from a postbox in China to Central Park in New York. A breath­taking search full of music and refreshing humor, subtly revealing an ancient mystery.
