"Disgraced" at the Pittsburgh Public Theater
The fourth play of the season at the Pittsburgh Public Theater is Ayad Akthar's "Disgraced", the winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
This is not a "fun" play. It is a pretty searing look at prejudices in American society in the post-9/11 world. Terrifically staged by the PPT, and wonderfully acted by the small, five person cast. This is a play that will make you uncomfortable, and it will make you think, and it might make you even squirm a little bit. In other words, it will do exactly what great drama should do.
Another winner for the Pittsburgh Public Theater.
