Power Play 1
First of two plays by business writer and broadcaster Margaret Heffernan about the collapse of US company Enron in 2001, combining drama with audio archive from Senate hearings.
It is spring 2000 and new recruit Vanessa, fresh out of business school, joins the aggressive band of traders on the trading floor of Enron's Western Power desk, whose market manipulation, dishonesty and culture of macho ruthlessness is bringing California to its knees.
Vanessa ...... Andrea LeBlanc
Karl ...... Jin Suh
