Why See Disgraced?
The 2013 Pulitzer Prize winner returns
Returning for a second run at the Mirvish this season, the 2013 Pulitzer Prize winner, and 2015 Tony Award nominated social drama Disgraced won critical accolades and record box office figures for its powerful stance on cultural collisions in a post-9/11 world. Ayad Akhtar's gripping play takes place over the course of one evening, centering on a Manhattan dinner party that descends into acrimony over suspicions of the host's supposed fundamentalist leanings. But is it true? Or has the heady combination of fear and alcohol have a lot to answer for?
Amir Kapoor is a successful lawyer of Pakistani ethnicity, living and working in New York City, in a post 9/11 world. Married to Emily, a white American artist whose work is influenced heavily by Muslim culture and religion, they seem to be living a happy and tolerant life. However When Amir and Emily, have his African-American colleague and her Jewish husband over for dinner one night, things take a heated turn when the discussion turns to a controversial case that Amir has become involved it. Their jovial mood soon disintegrates as sensitive subjects of race, religion and identity are raised.
