Program

A Pulitzer Prize- and Obie Award-winning play by Ayad Akhtar. In the play, an upwardly mobile Pakistani-American lawyer has achieved success while distancing himself from his Muslim heritage. When he and his wife host a dinner party, friendly conversation turns to politics and religion, escalating into something far more dangerous in this comedy-drama.
