ENRON is a theatrical and explosive tale of the collapse of a company. Inspired by real events, but told as a sprawling, dynamic tragedy, the play follows CEO and anti-hero Jeffrey Skilling through the journey of Enron's rise and fall.
"'We're going to put it together and sell it to you as truth.' That opening description by a lawyer in ENRON is deliciously double-edged. Not only is he articulating the company's secret attitude to business ethics, he's also encapsulating playwright Lucy Prebble's fearlessly imaginative approach…watching 'the corporate crime that defined the end of the twentieth century' isn't just instructive, it's a gloriously guilty pleasure…a cross between an insightful analysis and a savage Satire/Political Satire of high capitalism as moral vacuum." —Variety. "One of those rare works that crystallises the mood of its age. What needs stressing equally strongly is that it is also hugely entertaining—and accessible even to dunderheads like me who wouldn't know a financial instrument from an instrument of torture, though they currently seem to be much the same thing…She also knows how to construct a play, moving from savage black comedy to something approaching, classical tragedy as Jeffrey Skilling, the company's ruthless and brilliant CEO who was sentenced to twenty-four years in jail on fraud and conspiracy charges, reaps what his own hubris has sown." —Telegraph (UK). "A darkly exhilarating portrait of hypertrophied capitalism and a society that allows faith-based fiscal systems to ravage the body economic…a sharp-witted and rollicking business thriller to dazzle the eye and tickle the brain…Prebble's characters are deliciously vital and self-aware." —Time Out NY.
