Stephen Karam's new play about a Lebanese family in Pennsylvania in crisis is a refreshingly honest take on how we cope with wounds that just won't heal, and the funniest play about human suffering you’re likely to see.
The writer of the breakout hit Speech & Debate, Stephen Karam, makes his highly-anticipated return to Roundabout with the New York premiere of his new dark comedy Sons of the Prophet, directed by Peter DuBois.
If to live is to suffer, then Joseph Douaihy is more alive than most. With unexplained chronic pain and the fate of his reeling family on his shoulders, Joseph's health, sanity, and insurance premium are on the line. In an age when modern medicine has a cure for just about everything, Sons of the Prophet is a refreshingly honest take on how we cope with wounds that just won't heal, and the funniest play about human suffering you're likely to see.
Sons of the Prophet was commissioned by Roundabout Theatre Company as part of our New Play Initiative
