"Inside one large, nameless organization, the Managing Director tries to decipher an important memorandum written in a new, completely incomprehensible language that has been created to streamline office communications.
The Translation Department cannot translate the memo without a permit and the Department of Authentication refuses to authorize a permit without a translation."
Inspired by Havel’s experiences with Communist bureaucracy in Czechoslovakia, the office politics skewered in this smart, sexy satire are all too familiar for today’s audiences grappling to find meaning in the absurd doublespeak of corporate re-organization where workers are no longer laid-off but positions are disrupted.
“I think theatre should always be somewhat suspect.” Vaclav Havel
