Join us for an evening with Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Ayad Akhtar.

After graduating from Brown University, Akhtar moved to Italy and studied acting with Jerzy Grotowski. He returned to the U.S. to teach acting classes with André Gregory and earn his Master of Arts in directing from Columbia University School of the Arts. His playwriting credits include Disgraced, which premiered at The American Theater Company in January 2012 and which was staged at LCT3/Lincoln Center in New York in October 2012, and won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. His first novel, American Dervish, was published by Little Brown Publishing in January 2012.

The event will include readings and screenings of Ayad Akhtar’s most famous works, featuring:

The Invisible Hand
& The Who and The What, with Bernard White and Nadine Malouf.

Followed by a discussion with Neilesh Bose (St. John’s University) and Maha Chehlaoui (Noor Theatre).
