Enron's tale of greed and corruption will strike a chord on London stage September 2009
One of the most infamous financial scandals in modern history has been captured in theatrical form at the Royal Court Theatre (Sloane Square, London), and will run from 17th September to 31st October. Enron was written by Lucy Prebble, is directed by Rupert Goold, and is co-presented by Headlong and the Chichester Festival Theatre. The tragedy-cum-comedy follows its characters through a story of insatiable greed, self-righteousness and massive loss in the USA during the 1990s.
The play is particularly relevant in the current financial climate and a poignant reminder of real life events. The production takes its name from the demise of energy company Enron and irregular accountancy procedures leading to its bankruptcy and creation of the Sarbanes-Oxley corporate governance law. No casting for Enron has been announced at the time of going to press.
Writer Lucy Prebble has won numerous awards including the Critics Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright in 2004 and the George Devine Award. Tickets, costing £18 - £25 are available now.
