Ayad Akhtar’s celebrated play Disgraced is a controversial look at assimilation in contemporary America.

Disgraced. Olivia Gilliatt, Dorien Makhloghi. By Adams ViscomThe story follows an American, Muslim-raised corporate lawyer who has rejected Islam and embraced capitalism while his white wife — an up-and-coming New York painter — sees the beauty and wisdom in the Islamic tradition.

The play asks: Must Americans renounce their “other” cultural identities to gain mainstream acceptance in the U.S.?

The Director is Carl Cofield, and the cast includes Benjamin Pelteson, Olivia Gilliatt, Dorien Makhloghi, Christina Sajous and Vandit Bhatt.
