Sons of the Prophet

Madison

Finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, hailed as one of the “Top 10 Plays of 2011” by The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Newsday If to live is to suffer, then Joseph and Charles Douaihy are more alive than most. Their father has died in a tragic accident and their ailing uncle is losing it — putting the brothers’ once unbreakable sense of humor to the test. Amidst all this, Joseph’s eccentric boss is pressuring him to write a memoir about his family’s distant connection to Kahlil Gibran, author of The Prophet. With unexplained chronic pain and the fate of his reeling family on his shoulders, Joseph’s health, sanity, and insurance coverage are on the line. Stephen Karam pens a brutally funny comedy about family, culture, and how we cope with wounds that just won’t heal.
