DISGRACED at The Circuit Playhouse

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.

Disgraced features a strong ensemble of actors comprised of Greg Szatkowski (Peter and the Starcatcher; Seminar) as Amir, Natalie Jones making her Circuit Playhouse debut as his wife, Emily. Disgraced also features Jessica Johnson (Byhalia, MS) as Jory, Gabe Buetel-Gunn (Byhalia, MS) as Issac, and Shaleen Cholera making his Circuit Playhouse debut as Abe.

There will be a talkback facilitated by Facing History and Ourselves immediately following the matinee performance of Disgraced on August 21st, and will feature members of the cast and creative team. The talkback is open to all members of the public.
