"I have nothing but praise for every aspect of this production." —Manning Harris for Atlanta INtown

Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Tony Award nominee for Best Play, the most-produced play in America in the 2015/16 season, and soon to be an HBO movie. Find out why.

Disgraced tells the story of Amir Kapoor, a successful lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his Muslim roots. When Amir and his wife Emily host a dinner party, friendly conversation quickly explodes into something far deeper and more dangerous. A turbulent thrill ride, Disgraced examines an American identity far more complicated than any melting pot.
