In Disgraced, idle dinner party chit-chat explodes into the kind of rollicking, no-holds-barred argument that makes for truly delicious theater. Winner of a Pulitzer Prize, and also a Tony nominee for Best Play, this fascinating, powerful drama centers on a Pakistani-American lawyer who hosts a dinner party for a black co-worker and her Jewish husband, but what starts out as civil conversation quickly erupts into a volatile argument over race, religion and more. Now, this blistering Broadway hit -- written by actor-playwright Ayad Akhtar (who co-wrote and starred in the award-winning 2005 film The War Within) -- comes to the NextStop Theatre.

"...These questions and more will haunt you, and I highly recommend when you go to see Disgraced - and see it you must - be sure to go on an evening when there is an after-show discussion. There is so much we need to know about each other in order to heal the deep wounds that have been torn open and amply salted by recent events. This production is one place where the healing just might begin."

"...What a combustible evening at NextStopís production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Disgraced by Ayad Akhtar. Under Thembi Duncanís adroit direction and with fascinating casting, this in-your-face drama aims to stimulate, challenge, and yes, even chafe audiences. And does it ever. It is right for these messy times in America."
