By Ayad Akhtar

Amir Kapoor, a Muslim-American lawyer  and his wife, Emily, an artist influenced by Islamic imagery, enjoy their comfortable life on New York’s Upper East Side. When a co-worker and her husband come to dinner, what begins as polite table conversation explodes, leaving everyone’s relationships and beliefs about race and identity irrevocably damaged. Disgraced challenges the audience to think about the purpose of faith, relationships between white and non-white races in contemporary America, and about the process and responsibilities of creating art.
