The Invisible Hand
Reviewed on Wednesday 18th May 2016
Marking the final production before the Tricycle Theatre closes for refurbishment, Ayad Akhtar's play The Invisible Hand is a striking political thriller that makes its mark. Daniel Lapaine leads the cast as an American banker who is being held in a cell in Pakistan; delving into global finance, Lapaine gives a gripping performance as his character realises his freedom comes at a price.
Lapaine may give the performance of the night, but Tony Jayawardena, Sid Sagar and Parth Thakerar are also very strong. Akhtar's piece is gripping - it's not always an easy watch, but The Invisible Hand is a perfect example of the top notch, bold work the Tricyle Theatre is renowned for staging.
