Dubbed "explosively funny" by The New York Times, Sons of the Prophet, a 2012 Pulitzer Prize finalist, is also a compassionate and insightful drama. Playwright Stephen Karam's witty text explores the relationship between two Lebanese-American gay brothers as they try to navigate a series of crises. Their father has died, their uncle is losing his mind and older brother Joseph is suffering from a mysterious ailment. Plus, Joseph's eccentric boss is pressuring him to write a memoir about his family's tenuous connection to Kahlil Gibran, author of The Prophet. It all adds up to a remarkable story that, according to The New York Times, "shines a clarifying light into some of life's darker passages." See it in Washington, D.C. in this production from Theater J at the Goldman Theater.
