The Playhouse is excited to present the Texas premiere of Ayad Akhtar’s 2013 Pulitzer Prize award-winning play and Theatre Communication Group’s most-produced play this year!

Disgraced is the story of Amir, a successful Pakistani-American lawyer, whose life begins to unravel after he reluctantly lends his name to the cause of an imam accused of terrorism. When he and his artist wife host an intimate dinner party, what starts out as friendly conversation soon escalates into something far more damaging. Hailed as a “vitally engaged” (New York Times) and “blistering social drama” (Variety), this timely and provocative play about religion, race, and ethnic identity will leave you breathless.

Satchel Paige is the king of baseball: a charismatic, superstar pitcher.  But as Jackie Robinson wrpas his first historic season in the majors, Paige finds his own fame eclipsed and his desire for greater respect increasingly frustrated by the barriers all around him.  A story of passion and perseverance, this jazz-infused drama paints a vivid picture of America on the brink of a great change.
