Disgraced Closes

  • Circuit Playhouse 51 South Cooper Street Memphis, TN, 38104 United States

The Pulitzer Prize-Winning drama Disgraced opens August 19th at The Circuit Playhouse. 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.
