Three employees of Harlem Office, New York, a neighbourhood copy shop where promotions are rare, raises are even rarer, and racism is often on display...
Dolphins and Sharks is set in a mundane copy shop, but paints a brutal picture of life as an employee. The boss, Mr Timmons, is never on stage, but his orders must be obeyed by his staff. When one staff member is given the chance to move up to manager, friendships are tested and loyalty turns out to be less valuable than cold hard cash.
Soon cutbacks and office politics have everyone fighting to keep their jobs and their sanity. "Encapsulating the cruelty of 21st-century capitalism in one retail outpost, Tyler conveys a gut-level understanding of this world in which more and more is expected for less and less." (Theatermania)
Dolphins and Sharks has been performed to critical acclaim Off-Broadway and at the Finborough Theatre in London/
