Carol Rocamora, Edward Einhorn to Participate in The Memorandum Post-Show Talkback at TACT

News   Carol Rocamora, Edward Einhorn to Participate in The Memorandum Post-Show Talkback at TACT Carol Rocamora, the author of "Acts of Courage: Václav Havel's Life in the Theater," will discuss the life and theatre work of the Czech Republic's president, who was also a playwright and political activist, at a special discussion following the Nov. 12 performance of The Actors Company Theatre (TACT) production of Havel's Memorandum at The Beckett Theatre.

Rocamora will be joined by Edward Einhorn, the producing artistic director of Untitled Theater Company #61, which hosted a three-month-long Havel Festival in late 2006. Scott Alan Evans, Tact's co-artistic director, will host, and TACT dramaturg Stephanie Vella will moderate.

The talkback is free to the public with the purchase of a ticket to that performance. Patrons who have already attended the show and wish to attend the talkback may call the TACT office at (212) 645-8288.

The Memorandum also hosts weekly talkbacks with the show's cast and director, Jenn Thompson, following each Sunday matinee performance.

The play is billed as a look at "bureaucracy gone mad." In it, the managing director of an organization discovers that all office communications are suddenly being written in "Ptydepe," a new and impossibly complicated language. He seeks to get a memo translated, taking him through a maddening riot of red tape. The play is said to be inspired by the absurdities of life in communist Eastern Europe.

The Memorandum continues at The Beckett Theatre through Dec. 4. The Beckett is located at 410 West 42nd Street. For tickets, visit telecharge.com. For more information, visit tactnyc.org.
