THE STORY:

Melville’s subtitle to his classic Bartleby the Scrivener is “a story of Wall Street.” This serves as classic misdirection. The tale he weaves has less to do with finance, or matters legal, and everything to do with everything we take for granted in our everyday lives. When the lowliest and the meekest of clerks in an irrelevant legal office suddenly decides not to perform a simple task he had been ordered to accomplish, the world of his boss is turned upside down. At a loss for the appropriate action, his proper manager embarks on a journey that surprises him as much as it does the unlikely rebel. Those who are familiar with this beloved saga are in for an unexpected ride with the Organic troupe leading the way. Will Bartleby win the battle of wills? Will we ever solve the enigma behind his unexpected behavior? Will anyone who sees this production ever see their lives at the office the same way again?
