Wow. This is one incredibly intense show. I had no expectations going in, but I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
Disgraced is a show about how your upbringing, and everything that went along with it (prejudices, intolerences, and ambitions) are part of you and can still have an impact years later. The show uses the religious upbringing of four non-religious Americans to examine this through a series of conversations and one explosive dinner party.
The writing was spectacular, and the acting did it justice. The theater was fairly small and intimate - it felt like you were sitting in someone's living room. At times this made the show almost awkward and uncomfortable; like you were witnessing very private, and very real, conversations.
Disgraced was an excellent show with an excellent performance. It had a lot of deep messages about racial and religious discrimination and self identity. It left me thinking and questioning some of my own assumptions and beliefs. Although the beginning of the play incorporated some humor, this show was very intense!
