'Disgraced' looks deep into Muslim-American Identity

play: "Disgraced"

playwright: AYAD AKHTAR.
Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Tony Award nominee.

​Why people can't stop talking about Disgraced: relentless pacing, thrilling reveal of dark secrets, unexpected humor, surprising new perspective on America as melting pot.

Contains: Profanity, extreme violence, and adult thematic elements. Recommended for ages 17 and up.

Awards & accolades: Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Tony Award nominee for Best Play, the most-produced play in America in the 2015/16 season, and soon to be an HBO movie. PBA30 broadcast a special on the play, "Disgraced: Arts and Religion." Find out why.

Disgraced tells the story of Amir Kapoor, a successful lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his Muslim roots. When Amir and his wife Emily host a dinner party, friendly conversation quickly explodes into something far deeper and more dangerous. A turbulent thrill ride, Disgraced examines an American identity far more complicated than any melting pot. A modern thriller, included in The New York Times Best of 2014 list for theater, it was described as “potent…terrific, turbulent, with fresh currents of dramatic electricity… superb.” As the most produced play in regional theater this season, it has received impassioned audience response for its bold exploration of identity and culture in the complex landscape of 21st century America.
