Pulitzer Prize-Winning DISGRACED at the Virginia Stage Company Comes with Extensive Community Conversations

Virginia Stage Company sparks critical dialogue at the Wells Theatre with their upcoming production of Disgraced, the 2013 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by Ayad Akhtar. At a dinner party hosted by a Pakistani-American lapsed Muslim and his Caucasian wife and attended by his African-American law partner and her Jewish husband, tensions rise when conversation turns to religion, politics, and Islamophobia.

Disgraced begins previews on April 4 with an official opening night on Saturday, April 7 and closes April 22. Tickets for each performance range between $20 - $55 with discounts for groups, students, and the military.

Community Events will take place throughout the run of Disgraced highlighted by:

  • A free Brown-Bag Lunch community discussion on Wednesday, April 4, to which all community members are invited
  • Talkbacks after the Sunday matinee performances on April 8 and April 15
  • Facilitated small group discussions on April 13-14 and April 20-21.
