Mike Daisey, hailed as "the master storyteller" by The New York Times, turns his razor-sharp wit to America's most mysterious technology icon in this hilarious tale of pride, beauty, lust, and industrial design. By examining the human price we pay for our high-tech toys, Daisey has sparked a revolution in the world of technology and production, demanding social responsibility in the corporate sector and inspiring his audiences to action.
Following the media storm generated by Mike Daisey's appearance on This American Life and its subsequent retraction, Daisey released the Version 2.0, which The New York Times calls "more powerful, funny, and engaging than the earlier production." This all-new version cuts the contested material and addresses the controversy head on, using the struggle over fact and fiction to confront the truths we choose to believe, and those we choose to ignore, about our devices.
"I will never be the same after seeing that show." - Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder
"Anyone who sees Mr. Daisey's show — and anyone with a cellphone and a moral center should — will find it hard to forget the repercussions that our casual purchases can have in the lives of men and women (and children) half a world away." – The New York Times
