The Invisible Hand by Ayad Akhtar; West Coast Premiere
This riveting play exposes that the ability to reach in and manipulate market outcomes for money, ideology and power could be the ultimate mechanism for total control. When a futures trader is kidnapped in Karachi, Pakistan, his desire for self-preservation is tapped by his savvy guard who demands to be tutored in market trading skills. Tense scenarios unfold as the trader works to earn his release but unwittingly hands the tools for financial chaos and political vindication to his captor.
