Herman Melville's famous novella is brought to the stage in this moving adaptation.
On Wall Street in the 1850s, Standard, a well respected
lawyer, hires a mild-mannered Bartleby to join his staff of scriveners. The delicate balance of the office is disturbed by Bartleby's presence and silent resolve, as the group spins towards chaos, the action shifts from farce to tragedy and back again. This adaptation's portrayal of a lonely, inexplicably afflicted figure whose actions test the tolerance and humanity of his fellow men goes straight to the heart of our own treatment of the damaged and destitute.
Bartleby The Scrivener is directed by Richard Cotovsky. It features Todd Lahrman, Daniel Behrendt, Carlo Lorenzo Garcia, Kevin V. Smith, Leonard Kraft, Shirley Cean Rogiers, Monte Lamonte and Colm McCann. Designers include Matt Reese (set), Stefin Steberl (costumes), Matthew Gawryk & Nic Jones (lights), Joe Court (sound). Stage Management is by Allison Goetzman. Assistant Director is Gus Menary. Assistant Stage Management by Anna Mary Brennan.
