This week you can listen to Disgraced, a play by Ayad Akhtar featuring Supernatural’s own Emily Swallow. The show will be aired on NPR this weekend and will be available all week through SoundCloud.
Disgraced, presented by L.A. Theater Works, was recorded live in April 2018 at the James Bridges Theatre and was directed by Brian Kite. Here is a description of the play from the L.A. Theatre Works website:
Amir has left his Pakistani heritage behind in an attempt to make partner at his corporate law firm, but his wife Emily doesn’t share his negative feelings about Islam—she’s encouraged Amir to help with the case of a controversial imam. When they throw a dinner party for Amir’s colleague Jory and her husband Isaac, the hard truths revealed lead to the unraveling of their carefully constructed lives. Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
