Simon Feil, an accomplished Jewish actor from New York City, is in Hampton Roads performing in Virginia Stage Company’s production of the Pulitzer Prizewinning drama, Disgraced.
The play revolves around a dinner party that Issac, played by Feil, attends with his African American wife hosted by her law partner, a Pakistani lapsed Muslim, and his Caucasian wife. This explosive drama covers topics such as religious discrimination and politics. According to its director, Khanisha Foster, “It’s both really funny and takes some heartbreaking turns. The play is about what we can’t take back, the mistakes we made, and how we got there.”
Community conversations, sponsored by the Tidewater Jewish Foundation, follow each performance. Disgraced runs through April 22 at the historic Wells Theatre in Downtown Norfolk. Tickets range from $20 to $55. Vastage.org or 757-627-6988.
