London: a play called Enron

“I did think, I’m an Englishwoman in her 20s; what am I doing writing about American CEOs? And in Texas, at that, which is like America to the power of 10," confesses Lucy Prebble, a 29-year-old British playwright. Enron is a tragicomedy that has been sold out at London's Royal Court Theatre since its September opening.

"Directed by Rupert Goold, it uses dramatic devices to illuminate Enron's shady practices: A trading floor is a frenzy of modern dance, and analysts sing Enron's praises in the style of a barbershop trio," describes W writer Nina Jones.

As if a play wasn't enough, Columbia Pictures recently acquired rights to the story. Prebble is at work on the screenplay version.


"It was like having a mistress, whereas now it's like my wife, you know?" she tells Jones with a "wry smile."
