“Terrific, turbulent…fresh currents of dramatic electricity.”
—Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
“Unfolds with speed, energy, and crackling wit.”
—Marilyn Stasio, Variety
Identity, heritage, and passion collide in this riveting exploration of the stories we tell our friends, the secrets we tell our lovers, and the lies we tell ourselves to find our place in the American Dream. Ayad Akhtar’s 2013 Pulitzer Prize-winning play Disgraced—a potently funny tale of big-city aspiration and cultural assimilation—dares to face the truth hiding just below the deception.
