Tube: Kentish Town BooKING Now theatre enron RoyalCourtTheatre HHHHH LaUreN PaXMaN YOUD be forgiven for expressing scepticism about the merits of a multimedia drama on the Enron scandal. Most of us cant be bothered to learn how banks work when theyre haemorrhaging our own money, so why watch a financial crisis on stage? But a combination of Lucy Prebbles witty, unusual script and Rupert Goolds stylised direction, somehow turns the infamous bankruptcy into a play that will delight cynics of goings-on in the City. Rave reviews from Julys Chichester Festival Theatre also explain why Enron sold out and secured a transfer to the West End next January. Equally outstanding Samuel West, Tom Goodman-Hill, Amanda Drew and Tim Pigott-Smith play the American energy giants top dogs. But this isnt a straight history lesson. The Californian energy crisis wasnt half as dry when acted out by The Matrix-like characters waving lightsabers and feeding debts to raptors. Goold takes the abstract elements of Prebbles script and runs with them. The result: a subject that could easily have been boring or patronising is turned into one of the most original plays in London. lUntil 7 Nov index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html44.html45.html46.html47.html
