In the UK premiere of intense political thriller The Invisible Hand, penned by Pulitzer Prize-winner Ayad Akhtar, the Tricycle Theatre’s Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham takes an explorative look at the power of global finance.

Confined to a cell within the depths of rural Pakistan, American Banker Nick Bright knows that his freedom comes at a price. Every second counts as his fate remains to be determined – but by his captors, or the fickleness of the market?

Akhtar lays bare the raw, unfettered power of the economy in this dynamic, contemporary and galvanising play.
