The Nevada Conservatory Theatre (NCT) is pleased to present Ayad Akhtar's "Disgraced" March 31 -  April 9 in UNLV's Black Box Theatre; and April 14-23 at Cockroach Theatre. Clarence Gilyard directs.

Amir Kapoor is a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who rapidly is moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. Emily, his wife, is white; she's an artist, and her work is influenced by Islamic imagery. When the couple hosts a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation escalates into something far more damaging. Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Disgraced is an unflinching exploration of sex, religion, and cultural assimilation.

The cast includes Anil Margsahayam as Amir; Alexandra Ralph as Emily; Brandon Dawson as Isaac; Alexis Hudson as Jory; and Jacob Samir Sidhom as Abe. The production and design team includes scenic designer Trevor Dotson, lighting designer Eric Haufschild, sound designer Joey Jevne, costume designer Katrina Hertfelder, technical director Jimmy Kwon, and production stage manager Robert Acosta.
