Cast and Crew Announced For THE INVISIBLE HAND At Gulfshore Playhouse
Gulfshore Playhouse, Naples’ premier professional theater and nationally recognized LORT theater member, will present the suspenseful and provocative political thriller, “The Invisible Hand.” Written by Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Ayad Akhtar and directed by Kristen Coury, this show will run March 26 through April 16, 2022 with previews on March 24 and 25.
“The Invisible Hand” follows an American investment banker as he is held for ransom by a militant group in Pakistan. In exchange for a shot at freedom, the banker strikes a risky deal with his captors where he will teach them how to manipulate the financial market, but is the price of freedom something he’s willing to pay? “The Invisible Hand” is a tense, evocative thriller that explores the clashes and commonalities between two different cultures using the universal language of money.
“Different references, themes, concepts and world events make me realize how relevant this play is. I’m interested in helping bridge the gaps between diverse populations of people who might not think they’re the same as the other. One of the ways this play does this is through the lens of money,” said Director and Gulfshore Playhouse CEO & Producing Artistic Director Kristen Coury.
