The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs—a play about how the former Apple CEO changed the world—marks the sixth season of ETOPiA: Engineering Transdisciplinary Outreach Project in the Arts which examines how science and technology affect society.
“This play is a riveting exposé of the sometimes quirky, sometimes shocking secrets behind Steve Jobs’s genius and the legacy of industrial innovation that he left behind,” explains Matthew Grayson, producer of the annual ETOPiA event and associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science at Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science.
Written by Mike Daisey and featuring Joseph Jefferson Award-winner Lance Baker, the monologue is performed in a classroom in the heart of Northwestern University’s Technological Institute. Each performance includes a post-show discussion led by Northwestern faculty and students.
Performances are at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays in room L361 of the Technological Institute on 2145 Sheridan Road, on Northwestern’s Evanston campus from from September 27 to October 20 at Northwestern University in Evanston.
