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.

Critics' Reviews

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

Review by Thom Geier from Entertainment Weekly

"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."

Review by Marilyn Stasio from Variety
