About this product
- DescriptionFinalist, 2012 Pulitzer Prize for DramaWinner, 2012 New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best PlayWinner, 2012 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play A deeply humorous, unflinching portrait of grief and loss, Sons of the Prophet depicts a Lebanese-American family in rural Pennsylvania beset by an absurd string of tragedies. At the play s center is Joseph Douaihy, a once-promising world-class runner w sidelined by injury. As Joseph confronts his deteriorating health, he is also forced to face the death of his father, an ailing Uncle, and a desperate boss beset by her own tragedies. Deftly keeping its various storylines in careful balance, Karam s play confronts, with abundant intelligence and great sympathy for human frailty, the inevitability of loss and the equally inevitable comedy resulting from our attempts to cope with is consequences.
