About the Show


A dinner party between a Muslim, a African American, a Jew, and a Christian becomes a powder keg of prejudice and identity politics.

Presented as an unlikely counterpoint to the “feel good” A Grand Night For Singing, Disgraced is a Pulitzer Prize-winning drama that boldly confronts the hatred, fear, and prejudices that lie just under the surface of our modern society. Just as great theatre can conjure up immense joy and delight, plays like Disgraced can provide a wholly different kind of catharsis, by enabling us to tap into some of the most uncomfortable and dark corners of our thoughts and emotions. Audiences will be thinking about and discussing this story long after they leave the theater.

Running Time: Disgraced is approximately 90 minutes in length and performed without an intermission.

Disgraced contains adult language and situations that may not be appropriate for all audiences.

 


Why NextStop Picked This Show

From July 2017 to June 2018, NextStop’s shows, in pairs, explore opposing and seemingly incompatible sides of big issues and ideas. Our hope is by providing a relaxed and entertaining venue for the community to gather together and be immersed in stories highlighting diverse perspectives, that we can help break down barriers which divide.

Theatre isn’t passive entertainment. When we leave the safety of our homes, interact with strangers sitting next to us, and turn off our phones, it is a powerful act of unity. Patrons of the theatre may not always agree with challenging works but do agree to consider them. In the spirit of that tradition, NextStop’s lineup of shows for July 2017 to June 2018 presents a “Point and Counterpoint” year of theatre.

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s A Grand Night for Singing and Disgraced comprise our “Catharsis” pair. Together, these two shows will demonstrate theatre’s power of catharsis; first in expressing joy through music, then in expressing fear with words.
