‘Disgraced is just what a serious theatergoer craves these days: a tough-minded inquiry that finds urgent dramatic connections in things that divide us.’ – The Washington Post
Thanks to Queensland Theatre Company, we’re giving away double passes to the preview of critically-acclaimed Disgraced on Friday, 14 October at 7.30pm at QPAC!
Pakistani American Ayad Akhtar’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama fearlessly puts contemporary attitudes towards politics, race and religion under the microscope. Exploring freedom of speech, political correctness and the prejudices towards Islam that still persist even in the most progressive cultural circles.
Amir is on track to make partner in his law firm, he lives with his artist wife Emily in their spacious Upper East Side apartment, where occasionally they’ll throw a dinner party. Tonight’s guests are Jory, a work colleague, and her husband, Isaac, an art dealer, and, with so much in common, the conversation flows easily. Then, as it inevitably does in today’s conflicted America, the topic turns to race, religion and identity. How quickly things fall apart.
Intense and absorbing, Akhtar’s gripping modern drama sees the veneer of social nicety stripped away to reveal that little has changed and questions whether we can ever escape our roots.
