Disgraced

February 1 - 26, 2017

Explosive examination of cultural identity by Ayad Akhtar

Can anyone ever truly escape their past? Amir Kapoor is living the American Dream and quickly climbing the corporate ladder at his powerful Manhattan law firm. But when Amir and his wife Emily, an artist inspired by Islamic painting, host a dinner party for friends and colleagues, the pleasant evening quickly erupts into a volatile cultural debate over race, religion, and class in the modern world. This combustible drama is the "emotionally shattering" (Newsday) tale of the stories we tell our friends, the secrets we tell our lovers, and the lies we tell ourselves to find our place in the American Dream.

Terrific, turbulent, with fresh currents of dramatic electricity. Disgraced comes roaring to life on Broadway.
