What Is the Story of Disgraced?
DIsgraced centers on Amir Kapoor, a successful Pakistani-American corporate lawyer who feels he must distance himself from his heritage in order to get ahead in post-9/11 New York. His wife is a white artist who finds herself heavy influenced by Islamic paintings; his Muslim nephew is struggling to understand his role in modern New York culture. When Amir and his wife host a dinner party for his African American co-worker and her Jewish husband, tensions flare, allegiances change and the consequences are shocking.

Off-Broadway Plays Drama

"[Aasif] Mandvi, best known for his comedy, has a surprisingly commanding stage presence and captures the full range of his character's internal conflicts."

Entertainment Weekly

Thom Geier

"Dynamically staged by helmer Kimberly Senior and earnestly acted by a cast topped by Aasif Mandvi ('The Daily Show'), this play has 'Transfer me!' written all over its face."
