Tulsa Performing Arts Center presents: Disgraced
110 E 2nd St
Come experience Ayad Akhtar's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Disgraced, live onstage at the Liddy Doenges Theatre in the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. This provocative work introduces Amir Kapoor, a successful Pakistani-American lawyer living the American dream: an Upper East Side apartment, fancy suits and the promise of becoming partner at his law firm. When he and his American wife, an artist influenced by Islamic imagery, host a dinner party for their friends and colleagues, lies and deception threaten to shatter Amir's carefully-constructed life of cultural assimilation. The play deals with themes of race, religion and class in a post-9/11 America. Talkbacks with community and cultural leaders will be held following the Sunday matinee performances to discuss the material with the cast and creative team. This production is recommended for mature audiences.
