American Premiere
Written by Anupama Chandrasekhar
Directed by Ann Filmer
Jan. 25 – Feb. 27, 2013


Fortysomething Avinash is hopelessly lagging behind in a company that demands success, energy and youth. To catch up, he is transferred to the fourth floor — the office home to the youngest and brightest graduates in Illinois. Meanwhile, in the windowless, nighttime offices of a call center in Chennai, India, energetic workers covet the American Dream, and fake U.S. accents to target fiscally foolish American “marks.” Anupama Chandrasekhar’s Disconnect is a powerful and witty drama about the consequences of consumer culture and the intricacies of our interconnected global economy
