Called the "best original American play of 2011" (The Washington Post), The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs was first performed in the summer of 2010 at Woolly Mammoth and returned for its DC premiere in spring 2011. Since then, it has toured to 18 cities and been seen by over 75,000 people, including two runs off-Broadway at the Public Theater, and garnered national media attention including an in-depth New York Times piece on the human costs of manufacturing in Chinese factories, appearances on Real Time with Bill Maher and CBS Sunday Morning, and an adaptation of the show for NPR's This American Life with Ira Glass, which has quickly become the most downloaded episode in that radio show's history. Following the success of The Last Cargo Cult, Mike Daisey turns his razor-sharp wit to America's most mysterious technology icon in this hilarious and harrowing tale of pride, beauty, lust, and industrial design. He illuminates how the CEO of Apple and his obsessions shape our lives, while sharing stories of his own travels to China to investigate the factories where millions toil to make iPhones and iPods. Daisey's dangerous journey shines a light on our love affair with our devices and the human cost of creating them.
