Amir Kapoor is a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. Emily, his wife, is a white artist whose work is influenced by Islamic imagery. When the couple hosts a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation escalates into something far more damaging. Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize. “In dialogue that bristles with wit and intelligence, Mr. Akhtar…puts contemporary attitudes toward religion under a microscope, revealing how tenuous self-image can be for people born into one way of being who have embraced another…” – The New York Times

Advisory: Ages 16 and up for strong language and subject matter.

Disgraced Spot On Conversation – This play’s portrayal of Muslim American relations in the post 9/11 world is a first for our region. Our featured speaker will share thoughts and observations on our production, and will broaden the impact of the piece for the audience in attendance.
