Publisher's Summary

Pulitzer Prize, Drama, 2013

"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).

A much needed look behind the curtain

I hated how much this play read my mind - in a good way. Prejudice and bias must see the light of day. Very well paced and well written play, made me question humanity. How can something be so harsh and so entertaining at the same time? Well done.
