Karam's play Sons of the Prophet is part of Roundabout's New Play Initiative, a collection of programs, designed to foster and produce new work by emerging and established artists. Sons of the Prophet was commissioned by Roundabout Theatre Company, following his hugely acclaimed New York debut with Speech & Debate in 2007 at Roundabout Underground. That successful production of Speech & Debate not only launched the Roundabout Underground program, it also went on to play in over 100 theaters in the United States and Canada.
If to live is to suffer, then Joseph Douaihy (Fontana) 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.
