A Chat with Ayad Akhtar
LCT3 opened its 2012-2013 season with the New York premiere of DISGRACED, a new play by Ayad Akhtar, directed by Kimberly Senior.
DISGRACED is the story of Amir Kapoor (The Daily Show's Aasif Mandvi), a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. When Amir and his wife Emily (Heidi Armbruster), a white artist influenced by Islamic imagery, host a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation escalates into something far more damaging.
Produced by arrangement with the Araca Group.
DISGRACED had its world premiere in January 2012 at the American Theater Company, Chicago, Illinois (PJ Paparelli, Artistic Director).
