Disgraced, the most produced play in regional theatres last season, focuses on the lives of an American lawyer of South Asian descent and his artist wife living on New York's Upper East side. Their lives seem to move in predictable patterns of affluence and upper mobility. Her sudden interest in Islamic imagery begins to change her perspectives not only on art, but on Islamic culture. Her newfound connection with the culture of her husband's youth raises in him deeply conflicted views about his culture and his identity. A seemingly cordial dinner party with a co-worker and her husband explodes into a clash of racial, religious and political views that will leave everyone changed. Please note: This play contains some strong language.
Tickets for Disgraced are $15 for adults and $10 for students. http://www.hubtheatregroup.org/ticket-information For the first time, Hub Theatre Group announces the Pay What You Can Program. This outreach program is designed to encourage participation from those who may not be regular theatre-goers or who have been discouraged by ticket prices. One hour before each show, Hub Theatre Group will sell stand-by tickets for whatever one can pay (we suggest a $5 minimum, but feel free to pay what you can). Please call (806) 939-6571 for further information.
