The Pulitzer Prize winning play Disgraced by Ayad Akhtar, which opened at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre on 23 October 2014, following previews from 27 September, has now set its closing date. It will play its final performance on 1 March 2015.

Disgraced stars Hari Dhillon, Gretchen Mol, Karen Pittman, Danny Ashok and Josh Radnor.

It follows the story of "a successful Muslim-American lawyer and his wife - an artist influenced by Islamic imagery - enjoying their comfortable and successful life on New York's Upper East Side. When a co-worker and her husband come to dinner, what begins as polite table conversation explodes, leaving everyone's relationships and beliefs about race and identity in shards."

The production has previously been produced by Chicago's American Theater Company, LCT3/Lincoln Center Theater in New York, and London's Bush Theatre. It will be produced on Broadway by The Araca Group and Lincoln Center Theater, with direction by Kimberly Senior, set design by John Lee Beatty, lighting design by Ken Posner and costume design by Jennifer Von Mayrhauser.
