Organic Theater Company has announced the cast and creatives for their production of Václav Havel’s “The Memo” as translated by Paul Wilson.
The Orwellian workplace farce about language, bureaucracies, and surveillance follows Gross, the harassed managing director who unwittingly authorizes an experiment that will introduce an incomprehensible artificial language in an absurd attempt to increase efficiency.
Directed by Company Member Bryan Wakefield, the production features Tricia Rogers (Gross), Joel Moses (Balas), Kris Downing (Translation Assistant), Stephanie Sullivan (Kalous), Laura Sturm (Talaura), Colin Jackson (The Monitor), Subhash Thakrar (Kubs/Suba), Nick Bryant (J.V. Brown), Mary Mikva (Director’s Assistant), Kate Black-Spence (Kunc), and Schanora Wimpie (Masat).
The creative team includes Tony Reimer (Sound Designer), Angela Kring (Stage Manager), Nyssa Lowenstein (Assistant Director), Jeremy W. Floyd (Costume Designer), Terrence McLellan (Scenic Designer), David Goodman-Edberg (Lighting Designer), Justin Torres (Props Designer), and Kevin Nedberg (Technical Director).
THE MEMO runs May 22 – June 16 at the Greenhouse Theater Center: 2257 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago. For more information visit organictheater.org.
