THIS SHOW IS CLOSED
On the even of Steve Jobs’ death comes a play that puts into focus our obsession with the amazing devices the Apple founder created and our disconnect from those who labor in terrible conditions to build them. Mike Daisey takes us on a journey that he knows intimately.
The world of industry has always been a glamorous, treacherous and powerful highway. Under Steve Jobs it became a super highway powered by vision, computer chips and obsession. In The Agony And The Ecstasy Of Steve Jobs, writer/performer Mike Daisey takes us with him as he travels to China, investigating the shops where millions of workers drone away to create iPods, iPads and iPhones. Daisey’s journey offers insights into Jobs, the devices that we cherish and the exploited lives we care little about.
