About this show

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.
