Pulitzer Prize winning play by Ayad Akhtar is all set to make its Broadway debut. Disgraced has best been described as an intellectually intriguing play that centers on a politically sensitive topic. Exploring the conflicts that a man faces between his Islamic faith and modern culture, Disgraced boasts of an engaging script. Honored with Joseph Jefferson Award as well, Disgraced has been called a “rollicking play that bristles with wit and intelligence”. Following a successful run in London, Chicago and New York, this masterpiece is now coming to Broadway. Disgraced tickets will treat you to the most riveting 90 minutes.
Ayad Akhtar’s Disgraced is enjoying a successful run in theaters and is ready to come to life on Broadway. Winner of Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Akhtar has become a brilliant new voice in the theater world. His work mostly has Muslim identity as its subject and his own exploration of his faith and heritage has led to his artistic awakening. In the past years Ayad Akhtar has penned powerful dramas which include 2012 stage play “The Invisible Hand”, acclaimed book “American Dervish” and scripts for short films. Akhtar masterfully constructs his stories, writing plots that are intelligent, humorous and incisive. Besides Disgraced, another play by him premiered in June at the Lincoln Center and received immense acclaim. Titled The Who & the What, it examines the matters of family and faith, gender and religion – all mixed together to create an interesting plot.
The characters that Ayad Akhtar writes are a complete contrast to his soft-spoken, calm personality. The raw, impassioned characters that he creates make for gripping stage entertainment but sometimes even shock the playwright. In an interview Akhtar revealed that at times he has hard time believing that he wrote the character of a rash Zarina in The Who & The What, an intolerant Afzal in The Invisible Hand and callous Amir in Disgraced.
Disgraced is directed by Kimberly Senior who has worked with Ayad Akhtar before and was part of his play, The Who & The What. The production stars Hari Dhillon as Amir and Gretchen Mol as his wife Emily. Disgraced centers on a couple living high life in Manhattan – Amir is a Pakistani-American lawyer who has been passing to his Jewish colleagues as an Indian-American and Emily is an artist. Emily focuses on Islamic themes in her art and also encourages Amir to explore his religion and culture. She even convinced him to appear in court in a non-professional manner at a hearing of a local imam who was being prosecuted on the charges of funding terrorist groups. The one-act play moves from slow simmer to a hard boil.
Amir and Emily host a dinner for one of his colleagues and on the table, topic of imam’s impending case is brought up. As the conversation thickens, tempers flare, language becomes testier and shocking revelations are made. The 90-minute play is without any intermission but the surprising twist of events, heated talk and burst of violence keeps the interest alive. Though essentially Disgraced revolves around the potential tensions between religious faiths and the modern world, it also dramatizes and explores the complexity of one’s identity. It highlights the inner tug of war between the culture that people are born in and the one that they claim as their own.
Disgraced will bring to stage dialogues that will be controversial as well as enlightening. If you’ve been looking for quality entertainment, then this play is a must watch. From the sales of Disgraced tickets a sold out show is being anticipated.
