The Playhouse is banking on your interest in a provocative satire about which you may not know much. Sure, you’ve heard of the Enron scandal, that 2001 massive, energy company financial scam. But to have the Playhouse invest energy and capital in the eponymous stage work could seem a somewhat risky venture to open its new season. Face it, the 2009 play by 28 year old Brit Lucy Prebble, didn’t rake in fortunes in its one year life. So, admire the chutzpah backing up this local venture, taking on this self-described “true story of false profits,” with imaginative theatre devices, masks, puppets, video, songs, dances. Ain’t no documentary, partner, although the facts become clear in this wild cartoon.  FYI: Prebble is the master manipulator behind the sensational four-year-running TV series Secret Diary of a Call Girl. Trust The Playhouse. It believes you’re up to the challenge.
