Have you ever felt as if you've been caught in the middle?
Playwright David Jenkins hashes it all out in his Wall Street drama "middlemen" premiering at New Jersey Repertory Company now through December 8 at 179 Broadway in Long Branch.
Ripped from the headlines, this highly topical play deals with the cynicism and corruption that has come to characterize our financial institutions. Amid the drone of industrial air conditioning and the buzz of fluorescent lights, middle manager Stan and fiscal analyst Michael toil away on an exhaustive annual report in their desolate sixty-floor office tower. One-by-one, their co-workers have mysteriously disappeared, but neither really seems to care about anything, except that no one bought milk for their break-room and one of them may have been responsible for the collapse of Bolivia.
