From the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Broadway’s Disgraced
His ransom is set at ten million dollars. When Nick Bright, an American futures trader, finds himself kidnapped and held hostage in Pakistan, he knows the only way to get home is to do what he does best: play the market like his life depends on it. As the financial bond between Nick and his captors grows so does their understanding of each other. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar (Disgraced) thrills with this riveting and shockingly relevant new drama.
