After his October residency at The Church in Sag Harbor, playwright James Anthony Tyler returns to present a dramatic reading of his play “Dolphins and Sharks,” which speaks to our current working conditions. The reading takes place Saturday, December 2, at 5 p.m.

In “Dolphins and Sharks,” Yusuf, Xiomara and Isabel are employees of Harlem Office, a neighborhood copy shop, where promotions are rare and raises are even rarer. Tensions suddenly rise when one employee is given the chance to move up. Soon cutbacks and office politics have everyone fighting to keep their jobs and their sanity in this searing play about clocking in, clocking out and rising up.

Come learn about these complex characters and more in a live reading of “Dolphins and Sharks,” featuring actors including Joshua Echebiri as Yusuf, Tina Fabrique as Amenze Amen, Samuel María Gómez as Danilo, Angela Reynoso as Xiomara, and Pernell Walker as Isabel, among others.

Tickets to the reading are $15 ($10 members) at thechurchsagharbor.org. The Church is at 48 Madison Street in Sag Harbor.
