THE INVISIBLE HAND

2017-06-10 8:00 pm - 2017-06-10 11:00 pm
Raymond James Theatre
163 3rd St N, Saint Petersburg, FL, United States

Directed by Stephanie Gularte

“…a scary (and dreadfully funny) treatise on the universality of greed.” —Variety

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar lays bare the raw, unfettered power of global finance in this intense, fast-moving, and contemporary political thriller. American banker Nick Bright finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time when an Islamist militant group kidnaps him in Pakistan. When the United States won’t negotiate for his release, Nick offers to raise the $10 million ransom on his own by teaching his captor, Bashir, how to play the stock market. In a race against the clock to save his own life, Nick must ask: is the price of freedom something he’s willing to pay.

What is the cost of American capitalism in the Middle East?

    “Sexually and intellectually provocative … A HELL OF A LOT OF FUN!” —The Hollywood Reporter
     This smart and sexy play encapsulates the divide between Gen-X and Gen-Y, two demographics separated by only a few short years, and an expansive gulf of technical predilections. When twenty-something sex blogger Ethan tracks down his idol, the gifted but obscure forty-ish novelist Olivia, he finds they each crave what the other possesses.  As attraction turns to intimacy they inch closer to getting what they want, while also confronting the dark side of ambition and the trouble of reinventing oneself when the past is only a click away. Has technology brought us closer together or made us virtual strangers?
