A blistering social drama for the 21st Century.
Bristling with wit and complexity, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Disgraced is one of the most acclaimed new American plays of recent years. In Sydney Theatre Company’s Australian premiere production, the play fearlessly explores some of the most contentious issues facing modern Western societies, including racial prejudice, Islamophobia, cultural identity and aspiration.
Pakistani-American Amir Tapoor has it all – a happy marriage, a brilliant career as a lawyer and a tastefully decorated apartment in New York. Life is good until he and his artist wife Emily host an intimate dinner party. Small talk over pork tenderloin and chorizo soon turns towards a discussion of faith and politics. Secrets are revealed, tempers begin to flare, and the party spins out of control, as Amir realises that beneath all the trappings, his success has come at a price.
A bonafide Broadway hit, Disgraced is a timely, topical, thought-provoking and sensationally entertaining drama that will keep you talking long after.
Recommended for ages 15+. Contains strong language.
