In the Kreeger Theater
April 22 – May 29, 2016
From Ayad Akhtar comes the “breathtaking, raw and blistering” (AP
), Pulitzer Prize-winning play about the clash between modern culture and ancient faiths. The son of South Asian immigrants, Amir has worked hard to achieve the American Dream — complete with a successful career, a beautiful wife and $600 custom-tailored shirts. But has he removed himself too far from his roots? And when a friendly dinner party conversation rockets out of control, will the internal battle between his culture and his identity raze all that he’s worked so hard to achieve? Hailed as “terrific, turbulent, with fresh currents of dramatic electricity” (New York Times
), this incendiary examination of one’s self and one’s beliefs will leave you breathless.
