“Taut, engrossing and powerful.” – The Guardian
You can’t outrun your past.
Amir has left his Pakistani heritage behind in an attempt to make partner at his corporate law firm, but his wife doesn’t share his negative feelings about Islam – she makes Islamic-inspired art and has encouraged Amir to help with the case of a controversial imam. During a dinner party for Amir’s colleague, Jory and her curator husband, Isaac, the hard truths revealed to each other lead to the unraveling of their carefully constructed lives. Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
