The Producing Unit Presents:
By Ayad Akhtar

Ayad Akhtar’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play about a man torn between his Islamic heritage and his desire to achieve the American Dream comes to Santa Barbara for five performances, September 28–October 1. The son of South Asian immigrants, Amir has worked hard to achieve his American lifestyle: he’s a successful attorney, has an adoring wife, and lives a life of hard-earned luxury. But Amir’s Muslim cultural history clashes with his American identity in a series of events that throw his well-manicured life into chaos. When a dinner party with colleagues spirals into dangerous territory, Amir’s internal conflict between his cultural legacy and his desire to be “American” threatens to destroy all that he’s worked so hard to achieve. Called “Terrific, turbulent, with fresh currents of dramatic electricity” (New York Times), this provocative examination of contemporary culture clash will leave you speechless.
