Steve Jobs the Play Coming to Britain

By Sam Gibbs on at

There’s no doubt Steve Jobs influenced the life and times of quite a few areas of society including, it seems, the theatre. Now Brits will get a chance to see the American off-broadway hit play, The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs.

Mike Daisey’s impressive monologue, which charts the Apple co-founder’s career as well as Daisey’s own visit to a Chinese factory that put together the iconic gadgets, will play at this May’s HighTide festival in Suffolk.

The festival runs for 10 days and will see the play brought to a whole new audience after two successful 2011 runs at the New York Public Theatre. I’m not quite sure what the good people of Suffolk’ll make of it, but after reading the biography, I’m tempted to go. [The Guardian]
