Bartholomäus Federkiel is forced to admit that his work steers him away from his dream to found a theatre. But in exchange he finds a new dream: to make the premises of the City Theatre THE place to be for future authors and lovers of books and calligraphy.
The name is changed to City Theatre and Scriptorium of Aldradach - but right at the start of the Festival of Dragons in the year 13 a.f.A. there's a revolt among his employees of the theatre - in his favour. All of them want to support his new dream. The theatre is scrapped and from that day on all the former theatre staff members are working under the new name Aldradacher Skriptorium (Scriptorium of Aldradach) to sell beautiful and interesting literature and writing.
Bartholomäus Federkiel, played by Jens Grabarske, is the former director of the City Theatre of Aldradach. After a night full of drinks he took on the job of maintaining the Aldradach-Almanach from the original author, Ludovic the Player. In the beginning he just wanted to do this project on the side to be able to get to know the town of Aldradach better. But step by step Bartholomäus discovered his love for the written word. With the Scriptorium of Aldradach he not only strives to continue looking after the Aldradach Almanac, he also works on other projects and helps aspiring authors to find readers for their books.
