Tamara L. Honesty,
By Steven Fechter
Directed by Terrence O'Brien
With Alfred Gingold, Gus Kaikkonen, Bekka Lindström, and Vernice Miller
Set in a future world when the simple act of forgetting can be fatal, vigilante laws turn neighbors, friends, and colleagues into spies and informants.
Three people in their autumn years covertly hire an expert who can coach them for the perilous Memory Exam. Failure is almost all but certain — but the coach has devised a method that depends on how well they can recall the specifics of their most enduring memory no matter how factual or fantastic.
THE MEMORY EXAM is a play about courage, survival, and the fear of losing your future because you’re forgetting the past.
