8 p.m. Neese Theatre

Gross, the director of an unnamed corporation, receives a puzzling memo that looks like a bunch of jibberish.   As he tries to decipher it, he learns that it is written in a new language engineered to increase efficiency.  As he hears others speaking this absurd language, his paranoia increases.   Gross sets off on a nightmarish quest to learn the language and hold onto his job and his sanity.   The Memorandum is a darkly comic fable written by Vaclav Havel, playwright and first president of the Czech Republic.  Havel’s absurd comedy was written in 1968 to satirize government bureaucracy and lack of humanity.  Forty-five years later, social media, texting and global corporations keep such issues alive.  The Memorandum is for anybody who has ever felt that language and technology are evolving faster than they are!

By William Shakespeare

Directed by John Kaufmann

8 p.m. Neese Theatre

William Shakespeare's most popular comedy follows the adventures of four young lovers and a group of amateur actors who stumble into an enchanted forest.  Once there, they get caught in the crossfire of a quarrel between Oberon, the king of the fairies, and his queen Titania.  When the mischievous fairy Puck applies a love potion to the wrong mortal and puts a donkey head on one of the actors, the comical confusion begins.  

Will things be set to right before the sun rises in the forest?  We hope so, but the real fun comes in observing "what fools these mortals be!"
