SYNOPSIS

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.
