From The Goodman Theatre’s website –
“Amir Kapoor has turned his back on his upbringing in pursuit of the American Dream—he’s married to a beautiful woman, lives in a luxurious Manhattan apartment and is eyeing a lucrative promotion at his powerful law firm. But when Amir hosts a dinner party for his African American co-worker and her Jewish husband, the initially pleasant evening erupts into a volatile argument over race, religion and class in the modern world.”
