New York. Today. A Muslim-American lawyer is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while he distances himself from his cultural roots. At the moment of achieving his life-long ambitions, he falls victim to professional and personal betrayals, not least of which is his betrayal of himself.
American Theater Company teams up with the Broadway producers of Urinetown and last season's A View From The Bridge to premiere Ayad Akhtar's examination of a modern Muslim-American struggling to define his identity.
