The winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize, Disgraced is an explosive tale 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. Starring Josh Radnor (“How I Met Your Mother”), Gretchen Mol (“Boardwalk Empire”), Karen Pittman (Domesticated), and Hari Dhillon (star of the acclaimed London’s Bush Theatre production), and written by Ayad Akhtar, one of the most astonishing new voices in American theatre, this provocative tale of big city aspiration and cultural assimilation dares to face the truth hiding just below the deception.
