"Inspired by the absurdities of life in Eastern Europe under Communism, the play follows looks at an organization encumbered by a bureaucracy that is out of control. The introduction of an artificial language, "Ptydepe," is supposed to streamline office communications, but only makes it worse. Creation of ridiculous jobs, reversals in chain of command, one-up-man-ship, impossible bureaucratic protocols, constant surveillance by office spies, and the supreme importance of conformity to keep one's job make this a play people relate to all over the world. " By Vaclav Havel

NOTE: This play was selected due to the several connections that exist between Moravian and Havel. Moravian College has its roots in Czechoslavakia, where the Moravian Church was founded, and where John Amos Comenius--on whose educational philosophy the College is built--was born. In 1991, President Havel came to Moravian College to rededicate the statue of Comenius on Main Street.
