The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs: A play by Mike Daisey. 1st-5th October at the PRSC NEW BUILDING
Enter the world of Mike Daisey, a man obsessed by technology. He loves technology, he loves everything about it. He loves looking at technology, He even loves the smell of a new piece of technology—that sort of burnt PVC smell when you run electricity through it the first time?— He loves that.
And of all the kinds of technology that he loves in the world, he loves the technology that comes from Apple the most.
Cutting between the tumultuous career of Steve Jobs, and Mike’s discovery of how his beloved iPhone was actually made, ‘The Agony and the Ecstasy’ is a harsh, funny and moving look at consumerism, capitalism and a culture where we are always looking to upgrade.
‘The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs’ is the third production by Scram, a company which embraces the isolated, the unconventional and the completely bizarre. Using physical theatre and choral narrative, we aim to truthfully tell the stories of the people on life’s peripheries.
