This new drama explores Islamophobia and what it means to be Muslim in post-9/11 America. Amir is a successful corporate lawyer, enjoying his American lifestyle, but his parents came from Pakistan and raised him as a Muslim. He has “renounced” Islam, but has he really rejected the sense of identity he absorbed as a child? Where is the line between “us” and “them”? A fiery debate about prejudice, identity and faith, DISGRACED was nominated for the “Best Play” Tony Award in 2015, and before moving to Broadway, won the 2013 Obie Award for playwriting.
