Every word counts

The Invisible Hand

The Invisible Hand

Synopsis

‘You see we are prisoners of a corrupt country that is our own making. But don’t pretend you don’t participate. You do. Of course you do.’

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

Following a sold out run in 2016, Kiln Theatre Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham directs the first major revival of Ayad Akhtar’s tense, thrilling and ‘fiendishly clever’ (Financial Times) The Invisible Hand.

Ayad Akhtar (Barack Obama Favourite Books 2020 Homeland Elegies) is a Pulitzer Prize-winner, two-time Tony Award-nominee and winner of the Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
