The Agony And The Ecstasy Of Steve Jobs : Gilded Balloon Productions
A harrowing yet hilarious tale exploring the legality and morality of electronic sweatshops in China, complete with armed guards, underage workers and an insight into the toxic effects of hexane.
Meet Steve Jobs and the Chinese workers toiling to make our beloved iPhones. Starring Grant O'Rourke, playwright Mike Daisey's monologue is an emboldened, passionate diatribe that will make you question what you thought you knew about one of the world's most worshipped brands.
This is one of the most talked about pieces of theatre to come out of the USA in the last few years and has not been without controversy. This is a tale that was broadcast and subsequently retracted from the popular radio programme This American Life; a tale that has clearly gotten under the skin of audiences and media alike.
As a self-confessed 'worshipper at the church of Apple', Daisey tugs at heart strings, and demonstrates how one man's story might not be able to topple an empire, but it can certainly give it a righteous shove.
Recommended for ages 12 and over.
