Everything about the man played by Jason Lambert in Glen Berger's lecture-play is odd. He insists he can rent the expensive hall for only one night. He is a librarian --- alright, an EX-librarian --- but from not America but Holland. His box of scraps, which he insists is "An Impressive Presentation of Lovely Evidences," were collected from all over the world. He never sits. He may be an obsessed crackpot --- or he may have flimsy yet compelling evidence that God actually exists and, through seeming accidents He could have picked out this irrelevent little man to prove it. Or perhaps this whole exercise is nothing but a scrap of ossified pre-historic turtle excrement.
You decide.
But along the way this nervously over-emphatic little man created by Jason Lambert and Glen Berger and their director Barlow Adamson will sieze your attention and never let go. And thanks to The Devanaughn Theatre and the Mill 6 Collaborative, you have two more weekends to unravel this mysterious, enigmatic connundrum of a play.
You decide.

Love,
