The Invisible Hand

Written by Milwaukee native and 2014 Pulitzer Prize-winner for Drama Ayad Akhtar, The Invisible Hand follows Nick Bright, an American investment banker, who is kidnapped in Pakistan, where his captors demand he raise his ransom by trading in the financial markets. In teaching his captors how to manipulate the market, Nick fundamentally alters his relationship with them – and the world. This thrilling new play by one of America’s hottest playwrights examines how far we’ll go to save ourselves and the ramifications of our actions on global politics.

American Song

Andy Mancheski’s child left for school one morning and never came back. A Milwaukee Rep commission from award-winning Australian playwright, Joanna Murray-Smith, American Song asks what it means to be a father, a husband, and a citizen in a complex and changing world. It tells the story of an ordinary man who turned on the television news and knew the story of his happy life had shockingly and irrevocably changed. James DeVita, last seen in his tour-de-force performance of An Iliad, will star in this deeply moving examination of guilt and innocence, parental bonds, and life here and now.
