The Play’s the Thing


With the most recent episode of The Office taking place almost exclusively outside the office, one might ask how any employment law lessons can be teased out of it. Yet, if the Bard was right that “[a]ll the world’s a stage,” then surely we can analogize the Sweeney Todd performance of Andy (a/k/a Anthony Hope) and his fellow Scranton thespians to the modern-day workplace. So, here goes:

“[O]ne man [or woman] in his [or her] time plays many parts.” Don’t forget that the person who works next to you may have other roles in addition to the ones assigned to her/him on the job. For example, who knew that Creed was a furtive theater critic on the side? And when did Darryl, in the midst of his warehouse duties, learn to tickle the ivories like that? Probably about the same time his plumber discovered his own pipes (figuratively speaking).
