The Jerome Stage

October 18 – November 12, 2017

The personal is political in this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama. Amir Kapoor is a successful Pakistani American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. His wife, Emily, is a white artist whose work explores Islamic imagery. When this couple hosts a dinner party for their colleagues, the veneer of civility gives way to a damaging encounter in this unflinching tale of big-city aspiration, cultural assimilation and the truth hiding just below the deception.
