“Disgraced” – Lawyer Amir Kapoor and his wife Emily host an Upper East Side dinner. Amir is an American-born, Muslim-raised Manhattan mergers and acquisitions lawyer, while Emily is an up-and-coming artist who focuses on Islamic themes in her art. In all, the dinner table assembly includes an ex-Muslim, an African-American, a Jew and a WASP dining over the topic of religious faith. The play asks challenging questions about the nature of faith, about relationships between white and non-white races in post-9/11 America, and about the process and responsibilities of creating art.”
