Staring Richard Schiff from The West Wing, this play is only open in London for 10 weeks. The tagline is "Would you recognise a miracle if you saw one?" and tells the tale of a Dutch librarian who discovers a book left in the book drop annoymously 113 years after it was checked out. He finds a clue scribbled in the margin and it leads him to an unclaimed dry cleaning ticket in London which lead him on an adventure spanning the globe and taking over his life. It turns into a quest for a mythical figure who may be real.

It was a really interesting play in a lovely small theatre. By turns filled with dry wit and then saddness as the obsession grows. Definately worth seeing if you visit London in the next few weeks, especially as my ticket was £15.
