With ENRON, one of the most infamous scandals in U.S. financial history becomes a theatrical epic. At once a case study and an allegory, the play charts the notorious rise and fall of Enron and its founding partners Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling, who became reviled figures, thanks to comments such as: "The only difference between me and the people judging me is they weren't smart enough to do what we did." 

Mixing classical tragedy with savage comedy, ENRON follows a group of flawed men and women in a narrative of greed and loss which reviews the tumultuous 1990s and casts a new light on the financial turmoil in which the world finds itself today.  

ENRON is directed by Mikaela Kafka and features resident artists (and Artistic Director) Michael Bias as Ken Lay, Jaril Davidow as Jeff Skilling, Ryan Scott as Andy Fastow , Kristin Booth as Claudia Roe, and an ensemble of actors playing everything from lawyers to raptors.

ENRON and The Garage Theatre Group's 2014–2015 professional season are being sponsored by a grant from the Puffin Foundation.
