Amir Kapur is a successful Pakistani-American lawyer living on the Upper East side of Manhattan. He has also turned his back on his Muslim heritage. When he and his wife host a dinner party for Amir’s rising African-American colleague and her Jewish husband, the evening gives way to a searing debate about race, privilege, politics and identity, fearlessly taken on from a variety of cultural perspectives. Marriage, friendships, ambition, religion, race, art and power: nothing is off-limits in this riveting drama.
Tense, surprising and shockingly funny, Disgraced will hold audiences on the edge of their seats.
Female, African American, mid to late 30s. Recently made partner in AMIR’s firm. Married to ISAAC. Intelligent, forthright, and sharp. An articulate and confident woman who has wrestled her way to the top.
