Why See Disgraced?
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize
A play that seemingly grows more relevant with every passing year, Ayad Akhtar's Disgraced is a blistering examination of a post 9/11 America, delving fearlessly into issues of assimilation and Islamaphobia. The winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, it first debuted on Broadway in 2014. This Denver production is directed by Carl Cofield, and stars Dorien Makhloghi as Amir.
Disgraced is set in the Manhattan apartment of lawyer Amir and his wife painter wife Emily. Amir has rejected his Muslim heritage, while his wife clumsily draws from it as inspiration for her art. At a dinner party with friends, where misconceptions about Islam are being bandied about by the guests, Amir feels the need to speak up for the religion that he has previously so thoroughly shunned.
