epub Ê Gasping author Ben Elton ë Unknown Binding read æ ben elton Ç The script of Ben Elton's first play A satire on big business the media and product exploitation Designer air proves to be the marketing phenomenon of the decade but as demand outstrips supply Lockheart Industries plunders To buy into their stock he'd have to think twice and talk to his people They have a profit curve wound so far round the room that it looks like a Blue Peter Christmas appeal But they wan I will declare at the outset I am a fan of Ben Elton's writing ethics and comedy Some of his books are amongst my all time favourites The premise of the play is to draw a parallel to the impact of corporate greed on those less affluent I felt the fundamental idea was good and the delivery was a little rough Having worked at a managerial level in a large corporation or two I could relate to the sycophantic behaviour of Sandy and Phillip towards the 'Chief' The growing gulf between the 'haves' and the 'have nots' the increasing dominance of the corporate lobbyists and the sale of public utilities are all linked back to corporate and personal greed How much wealth is enough for the richest in our society? Do we need to take the air the people breath?My criticisms of the book are limited to the 'dumb' language that is occasionally used for example instead of saying appetisers or hors d'oevres using terms like 'snacky things' This is a common tactic in Ben's comedy that I don't likeThe play was on recently in the city where I live and I only saw the posters after the closing date I will try to see it next time
