Seattle Repertory Theatre
Summit is happy to announce that it is the Producing Partner for Disgraced, Ayad Akhtar's Pulitzer Prize-Winner now running at Seattle Repertory Theatre through February 6, 2016. After winning the 2013 Pulitzer Prize and enjoying successful early runs in New York, Chicago and London, Disgraced debuted on Broadway in October 2014, garnering a Tony nomination for Best Play. The show has received particular praise for its sharp writing; New York Times reviewer Charles Isherwood wrote that Disgraced is “a continuously engaging, vitally engaged play,” full of “dialogue that bristles with wit and intelligence.”
Disgraced comes to Seattle on the heels of a successful engagement at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, where it was extended due to an overwhelmingly positive response from both critics and audiences. Seattle Rep’s production will give Northwest theatregoers their first opportunity to see this international hit staged locally. The show also introduces the work of Ayad Akhtar, a rising voice on the American stage and screen, and features direction by Kimberly Senior, who helmed the original New York and Broadway productions.
