About The Power of Yes

A dramatist seeks to understand the financial crisis.
A play by David Hare

‘Not only enlightening - financially and psychologically - but biting, witty fun' - New Statesman

‘Engrossing... asks questions to which we all want to know the answers' - The Guardian

‘For anyone wanting a dramatic explanation of the crisis, this is a tour de force'- Observer

On 15 September 2008, capitalism came to a grinding halt. As sub-prime mortgages continued to dominate the headlines, David Hare wrote an urgent and immediate work that sought to find out what happened, and why.

Meeting with many of the key players from the financial world, David Hare, author of The Permanent Way and Stuff Happens, has created The Power of Yes: a compelling narrative, as enlightening as it is entertaining.

Not so much a play as a compelling account of how, as the banks went bust, capitalism was replaced by a socialism that bailed out the rich alone.
