by Ayad Akhtar

Directed by Michael Stevenson

May 4 – June 5, 2016
Sacramento Premiere – 2013 Pulitzer Prize Winner for Drama
Winner for Playwriting Ayad Akhtar’s Pulitzer Prize winning play centers around a dinner party between four people with very different backgrounds. As discussion turns to politics and religion, the mood quickly becomes heated. DISGRACED is a powder keg of identity politics. The play exposes racial and ethnic prejudices that persist just below the surface of the everyday politically correct dinner conversation.

“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.” New York Times
