From the most in-demand playwright today, Milwaukee native Ayad Akhtar brings us the play that got everyone talking, winning the 2013 Pulitzer Prize and took Broadway by storm. Amir, a successful Pakistani-American lawyer, is happy, in love, and about to land a huge promotion. But when he and his wife, a Caucasian artist inspired by Islamic painting, host a dinner party for Amir’s African American co-worker and her Jewish husband, the evening takes an unexpected turn and Amir makes a costly decision. Don’t miss this conversation-starter that will definitely give you something to talk about at the water cooler the next day.

What's Disgraced? Should I see it?
A dinner party gone awry – haven’t we all been there. Well this one is just a bit different. The hottest play in the country sure does stir up some great conversation. It’s dramatic, it’s topical, and you won’t want to miss it.
