Written by Vaclav Havel
Directed by Jenn Thompson

In The Memorandum, renowned playwright, former political prisoner, and the first president of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Havel, gives us a spiky satire of bureaucracy gone mad. When the managing director of an enormous organization discovers that all office communications are suddenly being written in "Ptydepe," a newly invented and impossibly complicated language, his attempts to get one memo translated lead him through an increasingly ridiculous maze of red tape.
