The Invisible Hand at The Tricycle Theatre

The Invisible Hand

  • 12 May — 2 July 2016 *on now

American banker Nick Bright knows that his freedom comes at a price. Confined to a cell within the depths of rural Pakistan, every second counts. Who will decide his fate? His captors, or the whims of the market?

Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Ayad Akhtar’s intense political thriller lays bare the raw, unfettered power of global finance in this fast-moving, contemporary play directed by the Tricycle’s Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham (A Wolf In Snakeskin Shoes, Multitudes, Handbagged, Paper Dolls, Red Velvet).

Cast includes Tony Jayawardena (Bend It Like Beckham, West End), Daniel Lapaine (The Merchant of Venice, Shakespeare’s Globe; Muriel’s Wedding), Sid Sagar (The Oresteia, Shakespeare’s Globe) and Parth Thakerar (The Hard Problem, National Theatre).

★★★★ ‘The exchanges are breathtaking as Akhtar engages head-on with the most incendiary and fractious issues of our time.’
Financial Times on Ayad Akhtar’s Disgraced (Pulitzer Prize 2013)
