Queensland Theatre is proudly presenting Ayad Akhtar's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, Disgraced, direct from Melbourne Theatre Company's sell-out season.
The critically acclaimed modern drama will run for a strictly limited season from 14 October to 6 November 2016 at Playhouse, QPAC.
Disgraced fearlessly puts contemporary attitudes towards politics, race and religion under the microscope. Directed by Nadia Tass, the intense and absorbing play explores freedom of speech, political correctness and the prejudices towards Islam that still persists even in the most progressive cultural circles.
Akhtar's gripping play sees the veneer of social nicety stripped away and questions whether we can ever escape our roots. The production features the stellar Melbourne Theatre Company cast including Mitchell Butel, Kane Felsinger, Zindzi Okenyo and Hazem Shammas. Joining the Queensland Theatre season is Libby Munro, known to Brisbane audiences for her Matilda Award-winning performances in Venus in Fur and Grounded.
The production crew includes Set Designer Shaun Gurton; Lighting Designer Nigel Levings; Composer and Sound Designer Russell Goldsmith and Daniel Nixon; Costume Designer Jill Johanson; Voice and Dialogue Coach Suzanne Heywood; and Assistant Director Benjamin Schostakowski.
Tickets are now on sale and priced from $60. Performances will run from 14 October to 6 November 2016. Purchase tickets at queenslandtheatre.com.au or by calling 136 246.
