Identity, heritage, and passion collide in this riveting exploration of the stories we tell our friends, the secrets we tell our lovers, and the lies we tell ourselves to find our place in the American Dream. Ayad Akhtar’s 2013 Pulitzer Prize-winning play Disgraced—a potently funny tale of big-city aspiration and cultural assimilation—dares to face the truth hiding just below the deception. Don't miss this 90-minute thrill ride of emotions and ideas
Recommended for ages 16+ for strong language and violence.
