Disgraced

By AYAD AKHTAR

Shelterhouse Theatre

Directed by LISA PORTES

See things as they are. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for drama and a sold-out hit in Chicago, London and New York, Disgraced exposes the stories we tell our friends, the secrets we tell our lovers and the lies we tell ourselves. Hotshot lawyer Amir Kapoor has spent a lifetime distancing himself from his strict Muslim upbringing. Ironically his wife, an artist, finds her own work increasingly inspired by Islam. When the two host a dinner party for their friends and colleagues, polite conversation escalates into an explosive exploration of identity, religion and politics. This timely and provocative new play illuminates the not-so-hidden prejudices very much alive in America today.

 "A smart and provocative work of unusual daring, one that should be seen by anyone who cares about serious theatre." — Newsday

 

ADVISORY: Disgraced is appropriate for adult and older teenage audiences. This Pulitzer Prize winner opens conversations about religion and race and includes very strong adult language, violence and other mature themes.

RUNNING TIME: The show runs approximately 80 minutes with no intermission.
