Pulitzer Prize Winning Play “DISGRACED” Premiers in Singapore
This November, Singapore Repertory Theatre presents the Singapore premiere of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Disgraced.
Following its Tony-nominated Broadway run in New York, Disgraced has gone on to become the most staged play in the United States in 2016.
Director Nate Silver, who was involved with the Broadway production of Disgraced, is coming to direct the show for SRT in Singapore.
Disgraced tells the story of Amir who has worked hard to achieve the American Dream. He’s come a long way from his South Asian roots and has a successful career in law, a beautiful American wife and even a wardrobe of $600 custom-tailored shirts. His life however, begins to unravel when a celebratory dinner with friends leads to a fiery clash about his culture and identity that he’s worked so hard to cultivate. Has Amir removed himself too far from his roots?
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to bring Disgraced to Singapore and to the audiences at Singapore Repertory Theatre. I’ve been working on the play since 2012 – off-Broadway, on Broadway, and through a US National Tour. The play is always evolving. Its meaning continues to shift along with the world around us, and its profound resonance is different in every city, and with each individual performance. In short, Disgraced is a contemporary tragedy that presents real, complicated characters wrestling with their place in the world and their humanity. Evidenced by its productions across the globe, there truly is no play that more honestly and directly speaks to this cultural moment and forces us to confront our identities, prejudices, and fears.” said Director Nate Silver.
Disgraced will be staged from 16th November 2016 till 4 December 2016 at KC Arts Centre – Home of SRT. Performance commence at 8:00pm. Tickets from $35 onwards are now available from www.sistic.com.sg , at all SISTIC outlets and the booking hotline (65) 6348 5555
