A Headlong Theatre, Chichester Festival Theatre and Royal Court Production
Direct from the West End and Broadway

There was a warning.  And its name was ENRON.

This record breaking production is directed by Headlong’s Artistic Director Rupert Goold. One of the most infamous scandals in financial history becomes a unique theatrical event in ‘Rupert Goold’s brilliant production’ (Guardian). Mixing classical tragedy with savage comedy, ENRON reviews the tumultuous 1990s and casts new light on the current financial situation.

Please note: Contains strobes, strong language, adult scenes, recommended 14+.
