The Memo
by Vaclav Havel
a new translation by Paul Wilson
Theater Company of Lafayette
Lafayette, CO
Scenic and Lighting Design, Technical Direction
Directed by Madge Montgomery
May 2008







Part of Havel's satire points out how conformity, taken to extreme lengths, becomes absurd. Director Madge Montgomery
and scenic designer Brian Miller take that idea to extreme -- and effective -- lengths by making the office where the
action takes place a room made completely of cardboard. The walls, the pipes, the tables and the drawers are all
fashioned out of dull ocher cardboard box pieces. The characters are figuratively, and literally, in the same box.
