Presented by Arena Stage at the Mead Center of American Theater
By Ayad Akhtar
Directed by Timothy Douglas
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2013 and a 2015 Tony nominee for Best Play,Disgraced takes one dinner party’s casual chit-chat and blows it up into a rollicking, no-holds-barred argument that makes for truly delicious theater. What starts out as civil conversation quickly erupts into a volatile argument over race, religion and more. Now this blistering Broadway hit — penned by actor-playwright Ayad Akhtar (who co-wrote and starred in the award-winning 2005 film The War Within) — comes to D.C.’s Kreeger Theater at Arena Stage.
