Photo Flash: First Look at Rajesh Bose, Nicole Lowrance, Shirine Babb and Benim Foster in Long Wharf Theatre's DISGRACED
Long Wharf Theatre, under the leadership of Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein and Managing Director Joshua Borenstein, begins its 2015-16 season with Disgraced by Ayad Akhtar, directed by Edelstein, in association with Huntington Theatre Company. Check out a first look at the production below!
The production takes place from October 14 through November 8, 2015 on the Claire Tow Stage in the C. Newton Schenck III Theatre. Tickets are $25-$85.
The cast includes Shirine Babb (Jory), Benim Foster (Isaac), Mohit Gautam (Abe), Nicole Lowrance (Emily), and Rajesh Bose (Amir). The creative team is comprised of Lee Savage (sets), Ilona Somogyi (costumes), Eric Southern (lights), David Van Tieghem (sound), and Jeff Brancato (stage manager).
Amir and his beautiful wife Emily enjoy their charmed life in New York - he's poised to make partner at a white-shoe law firm while her painting is being considered for a prestigious gallery exhibit. When Amir's teenaged nephew asks for help in defending an imam accused of funding terrorists, a series of emotionally shattering events upends their perfect world, and forces them to confront the compromises they endured to stake out their own piece of the American dream. Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer
Prize, Disgraced is a compelling and provocative tale about the consequences of denying one's own identity.
