Enron

Enron

One of the most infamous scandals in financial history becomes a theatrical epic in Enron, a dazzling exposition of the shadowy mechanisms of economic deceit.


At once a case study and an allegory with continuing importance, the play charts the notorious rise and fall of the company Enron and its founding partners Ken Lay and Jeffrey Skilling. Mixing classical tragedy with savage comedy and surreal metaphor, Enron follows a group of flawed men and women in a narrative of greed and loss which reviews the tumultuous 1990s, and the financial chaos which has spilled over into our century.
