Disgraced

Written by Ayad Akhtar 
Directed by Kimberly Senior
September 12 - October 18, 2015 in the Albert

Can anyone ever truly escape their past? Having distanced himself from his Muslim upbringing, Amir Kapoor is quickly climbing the corporate ladder at his powerful Manhattan law firm. When Amir and his wife Emily, a Caucasian artist inspired by Islamic painting, host a dinner party for Amir’s African American co-worker and her Jewish husband, the initially pleasant evening quickly erupts into a volatile cultural debate over race, religion and class in the modern world. Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and helmed by the play’s Broadway director Kimberly Senior, Disgraced delivers unflinching insight into the complexities of cultural assimilation and the struggle to define one’s identity in today’s global society.
