More on Disgraced

Disgraced is story of a Muslim-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while he distances himself from his cultural roots. At the moment of achieving his life-long ambitions, he falls victim to professional and personal betrayals, not least of which is his betrayal of himself. Ayad Akhtar's play is an examination of a modern Muslim-American struggling to define his identity.

The play stars Josh Radnor (“How I Met Your Mother”) as Issac, Gretchen Mol (“Boardwalk Empire”) as Emily, Karen Pittman (Domesticated) as Jory, and Hari Dhillon (star of the acclaimed London’s Bush Theatre production) as Amir.
