In Disgraced, idle dinner party chit-chat explodes into the kind of rollicking, no-holds-barred argument that makes for truly delicious theater. Winner of the Pulitzer for Drama in 2013 and a 2015 Tony nominee for Best Play, this fascinating, powerful and bracing drama centers around a Pakistani-American lawyer who hosts a dinner party for a black co-worker and her Jewish husband, and what starts out as civil conversation quickly erupts into a volatile argument over race, religion and more. Kimberly Senior, who directed the blistering Broadway hit -- penned by actor-playwright Ayad Akhtar (who co-wrote and starred in the award-winning 2005 film The War Within) -- now brings Disgraced to Berkeley Rep.
Running time is 80 minutes, with no intermission.
