The Berkley Repertory Theater is producing a play titled The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs.

The play will be a monologue that “dives into the epic story of a real-life Willy Wonka whose personal obsessions profoundly affect our everyday lives” The play isn’t all roses in it’s portrayal of Jobs, though. It follows the trail to China where millions toil in factories to create iPhones and iPods – something Apple has been under pressure for lately.

The play stars Mike Daisey as Steve Jobs. Daisey is best known for leaving Amazon to become an actor. In 2001 his book 21 Dog Years, an account of his time working for during the dotcom boom years, thrust him into the limelight

The play will run from January 14 to February 27, 2011 and is directed by Jean-Michele Gregory. [via]
