Aesthetica presents the trailer for the upcoming Bush Theatre production and UK première of Disgraced – the recent winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama 2013 . Covering ambition, culture and faith, the piece took US audiences by storm in 2012 and provoked debate across the nation. Set in present-day New York, it follows Corporate Lawyer Amir Kapoor – happy, in love and about to land the biggest career promotion of his life. But beneath the veneer, success has come at a price. When Amir and his artist wife, Emily, host an intimate dinner party at their Upper East Side apartment, what starts out as a friendly conversation soon escalates into something far more damaging.
The production opens on 22 May, with previews from the 17 May, and runs until 22 June. For more information and to book tickets, please visit www.bushtheatre.co.uk.
