The Memorandum SOLD OUT

  • November 7, 2012 · 7:30 PM

"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

      Interesting and entertaining in a eclectic artsy abstract sort of way. Awesome cast and a beautifully simple and effective set.

    Please meet in the Timms lobby in an area to the right of the main entrance 6:45 to 7 pm. The last play at this venue was packed so the group members were spread out across the theatre. We will go in early to get seats together. I will be wearing/carrying a brown fur-like coat and sporting a yellow sunflower about-my-person. If you have last minute change in your schedule, please post Comment or update RSVP. I can also be reached on work bb at [masked] up until the play start time. See you tomorrow for a mid-week theatre fix :) Lady V (aka Victoria B)

      sorry, couldn't make the show 'cause of the weather. :( Was caught up in traffic and shovelling and couldn't get to email you. Hope the play was good. I was dissappointed to miss it.

    • Victoria B.

      Hi Kathy, yes you will need to buy your ticket on your own. We did not have enough responses to qualify for a group discount.

  • Victoria B.

    Discounts are available for group bookings. If enough people are interested, I will investigate and post here.
