Description

Elizabeth Holmes claims her biotechnology will revolutionize medicine – and people believe her. As she defrauds investors of hundreds of millions of dollars and uses her disastrous technology to test real patients, does she think she's doing anything wrong? This devised play, based on verbatim interviews, trial exhibits, Holmes's personal notes, and new writing, asks questions about the gap between appearance and reality as it delves into the mind of the fraudster once considered guaranteed to change the world.
