New Jersey Repertory Company will offer the New Jersey premiere of David Jenkins' new comedy Middlemen. The production is scheduled to run from November 7-December 8.

Middlemen highlights the cynicism and corruption that has come to define the modern-day Wall Street environment. Set in a desolate 60-floor office tower, middle manager Stan (Duncan Rogers) and fiscal analyst Michael (David Friedlander) obliviously slog through an exhaustive annual report as, one by one, their coworkers mysteriously disappear.

Jenkins, a founding member and the artistic director of the New York City-based theater ensemble Human Animals, premiered Middlemen with his company in 2009. Marc Geller will direct the NJ Rep production.
