Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Caryl Churchill’s Serious Money skewered the 1980s; Prebble’s Enron knifes the Noughties. - Sunday Times
Sunday Times

Caryl Churchill's Serious Money skewered the 1980s; Prebble's Enron knifes the Noughties.
Variety

Both a dazzling piece of entertainment and a gripping cautionary tale…What's clear is that the sensational stage effects deliver the same blood-pumping thrills of a musical, wrapped around a play, by Lucy Prebble, with more brains in its head than any tuner since Assassins.
New York Post

Enron is a whip-smart, edge-of-your-seat ride that'd rival anything at Six Flags -- there are even raptor-headed businessmen prancing around.
New York Observer

A surprising and remarkable creation: It's a two-and-a-half-hour lecture on business history, and it's utterly thrilling.
Bloomberg News

Enron is at once an astonishing thrill ride through the high-flying '90s and a chilling precursor to everything that would follow.
The Guardian

An exhilarating mix of political satire, modern morality and multimedia spectacle.
The Times of London

Not to be missed. The political theatre of the 21st century has arrived, in some style.
Daily Telegraph

One of those rare works that crystallizes the mood of its age.
Observer

One of the most incisive, most grown-up political dramas of the past 10 years.
Sunday Times of London

Caryl Churchill's Serious Money skewered the 1980s; Prebble's Enron knifes the Noughties.
Evening Standard

The collapse of US energy giant Enron brilliantly reconfigured by Lucy Prebble...(her) great skill lies in her ability to take us through complex concepts with ease, without bemusing or, worse, patronizing us.
Time Out

A darkly exhilarating portrait of hypertrophied capitalism and a society that allows faith-based fiscal systems to ravage the body economic...A sharp-witted and rollicking business thriller...Prebble's characters are deliciously vital and self-aware.
