Description
From the cover. "It's a rare work that jolts an audience into cries of pained shock, but Ayad Akhtar's Pulitzer winner... does just that. A powerful, challenging, deftly crafted work, this is a bold exploration of race, culture, and what it means to be Muslim in post-9/11 America" -- Sunday Times (London). "The theatrical equivalent of getting to know the new neighbors -- something we had better do if we plan to survive as a civil society" -- Michael Feingold, Village Voice. "Sparkling and combustible" (Bloomberg Businessweek), "Disgraced rubs all kinds of unexpected raw spots with intelligence and humor" (Newsday). "In dialogue that bristles with wit and intelligence, Akhtar puts contemporary attitudes toward religion under a microscope, revealing how tenuous self-image can be for people born into one way of being who have embraced another... Everyone has been told that politics and religion are two subjects that should be off-limits at social gatherings. But watching these characters rip into these forbidden topics, there's no arguing that they make for ear-tickling good theater" (New York Times). "Add a liberal flow of alcohol and a couple of major secrets suddenly revealed, and you've got yourself one dangerous dinner party" (Associated Press).
