Victorian, unique and vintage are but a few ways to describe the eye-catching Old Joint Stock Theatre pub, sitting just shy of Birmingham City Centre. Born originally as a library in 1862 then later a bank, this decadent and richly decorated Victorian pub sits comfortably opposite St Philips Cathedral…
The Agony & the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs
- No reviews.
- Old Joint Stock Pub & Theatre
Mike has a love affair with technology and a deep admiration for Steve Jobs. Then he visited the factory in Shenzhen, China, where the iPhone is made, and everything changed.
In the monologue, The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, Mike's revelations of his shocking journey to the Foxconn plant are interwoven with the story of Steve's life, and through Mike's, often comic point of view, we confront ourselves, as he shows us the way technology has taken over our lives. Nigel Francis, who credits at the Old Joint Stock include, Fragile, Scaramouche Jones and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, plays Mike in this new adapted version that has already been seen in Germany and France.......So! Leave your iPhone at home, if you dare, and come and listen to this funny, thought provoking and insightful story, full of inconvenient truths.....
'' I will never be the same after seeing that show'' - Steve Wozniak - Co-founder APPLE.
'' Mike Daisey, in addition to providing us with a riveting, hilarious, but ultimately gut-wrenching piece of theatre, may actually end up being singularly responsible for bringing Goliath to it's knees.'' - Michael Moore, filmmaker.
''Audience members laugh and clap as he slowly disillusions them about their favorite products.'' - Suzy Evans for Back Stage.
''It's brilliant and , of course, it's topical.'' - Michael Sommers, Newsroom Jersey.
