This Orwellian farce about language, bureaucracies, and surveillance takes place at the surprisingly real and relevant intersection of Monty Python, The Office, and 1984.  MEMO follows Gross, the harassed managing director who unwittingly authorizes an experiment that will introduce an incomprehensible artificial language causing the breakdown of human relationships and their replacement by unscrupulous struggles for power. Playwright Vaclev Havel explores the self-deluding rationalizations and moral compromises that characterize life under a totalitarian political system.
