Disgraced is the story of Amir Kapoor, a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. When Amir and his wife Emily, a white artist influenced by Islamic paintings, host a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation escalates into something far more damaging. This is the third LCT3 production at the Claire Tow Theater, Lincoln Center Theater’s newest stage. LCT3 is Lincoln Center Theater’s programming initiative for new artists and new audiences.
