Ayad Akhtar won the Pulitzer Prize for his drama Disgraced, which takes on all the classic conversational no-nos: race, religion and justice. At the center is Amir, a non-practicing Muslim American corporate lawyer, and his white wife, Emily, an artist. When Amir's cousin Abe asks for legal help defending an imam charged with aiding terrorists, Amir is stuck between family and professional considerations. His troubles only deepen when a dinner with his black colleague and her Jewish husband turns into a serious discussion about the case and Amir's role in it. The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis presents Disgraced Tuesday through Sunday (February 12 through March 6) at Webster University's Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; 314-968-4925 or www.repstl.org). Tickets are $17.50 to $79.50.
