April 18, 2013

Playwright, actor, novelist, and screenwriter Ayad Akhtar ’93 won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama yesterday for his first play, Disgraced, which the judges described as "a moving play that depicts a successful corporate lawyer painfully forced to consider why he has for so long camouflaged his Pakistani Muslim heritage."
