Bar Academy: "Disgraced" at the Philadelphia Theatre Company Oct. 29

Disgraced Credits Join the Philadelphia Bar Academy, in partnership with the Philadelphia Theatre Company, and enjoy a performance of the play "Disgraced," winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize, at the Suzanne Roberts Theater, on Thursday, Oct. 29, at 8 p.m. "Disgraced" portrays Amir Kapoor, a successful Pakistani-American lawyer, living in New York and competing for a partnership, who is hiding his upbringing from colleagues. His wife, Emily, is seeking recognition in the arts world as a painter whose work is influenced by Islamic imagery. When a pleasant dinner party conversation steers to politics, religion and cultural identity, the evening ignites, shattering polite discourse and revealing disturbing secrets.

Following the performance, attendees will have the chance to meet and speak with the cast. Bar Academy is offering attendees orchestra center seats priced at the discounted rate of $42. Space is limited so purchase tickets today. To purchase tickets, click here.
