Geoffrey Arend and Hari Dhillon head the cast when L.A. Theatre Works records Ayad Akhtar’s...

  • Ayad Akhtar’s controversial Pulitzer Prize and Obie Award-winning drama has become one of the most passionately discussed plays in the world. Amir Kapoor is a brilliant, successful Pakistani-American attorney who has turned his back on his childhood faith in order to thrive in America. On the surface, he has it all: a beautiful wife, a swanky apartment and a lucrative career. But the charmed life he so artfully constructed is put in jeopardy when a dinner party turns tumultuous and the guests' ideals of culture, marriage, career and family collide. Hari Dhillon reprises the role of Amir he played in New York, London and Los Angeles for this live-in-performance recording, joined by Behzad Dabu from the original Chicago production as well as the subsequent tour to Berkeley, Seattle and Los Angeles and Emily Swallow from the Mark Taper’s L.A. premiere. Joining them for this LATW production is Geoffrey Arend (Body of Proof, Madame Secretary). Each of the five performances at UCLA’s state-of-the-art James Bridges Theater will be recorded live in front of an audience for future radio broadcast, distribution on CD, digital download and online streaming. L.A. Theatre Works' syndicated radio theater series broadcasts weekly on public radio stations across the U.S. (locally, in Southern California, on KPFK 90.7 FM); can be heard daily in China and around the world on the Radio Beijing Network; can be downloaded as a podcast via iTunes and Wondery.com; and can be streamed on demand at www.latw.org. April 19 – April 22; L.A. Theatre Works @ the James Bridges Theater, UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, 235 Charles E. Young Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90095; $15-$60; (310) 827-0889; www.latw.org
