“Boy” Director and “Supercity” Star Share the Agony and Ecstasy

Silo presents
THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY OF STEVE JOBS
Written by Mike Daisey

One of the most controversial pieces of modern theatre returns for one night only, when The Agony and The Ecstasy of Steve Jobs polarizes audiences, Sunday November 18th at the Concert Chamber, Auckland Town Hall – and as more names are announced, the cast for the production this time gets stronger and stronger.

Taika Waititi, director of New Zealand smash hit Boy and recently the US adaptation of cult UK comedy The Inbetweeners, will be featuring in the Oliver Driver directed piece. He is joined also by Supercity star and musician Madeleine Sami and Shortland Street actress Beth Allen for this fantastic, star studded performance of Daisey’s notorious work.

They feature alongside the likes of Shavaughn Ruakere, More FM’s Clarke Gayford, 95bFM’s Sarin Moddle, Adam Gardiner, Paolo Rotondo, Cameron Rhodes and Toni Potter.

Much like a must-see documentary, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY OF STEVE JOBS is critical theatre – and with one performance only it’s even more important to book now.

The best original American play so far this year” –The Washington Post.

“The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs,” is a mind-clouding, eye-opening exploration of the moral choices we unknowingly or unthinkingly make when we purchase nifty little gadgets like the iPhone and the iPad.” – New York Post

The Concert Chamber, Auckland Town Hall
Sunday November 18th, 6pm
Tickets: $49.00

  • Gordon Campbell: On The Best Albums Of 2016

    OK, I’m not even going to try and rationalise this surrender to a ‘best of’ listicle. Still…maybe there is an argument for making some semblance of narrative order out of a year that brought us Trump, Brexit and the deaths of Prince, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen and Alan Vega, who I missed just as much as the Big Three. So without further ado….oh, but first a word from the sponsor More>>
