We are pleased to announce a second commission to playwright Stephen Karam following his critically acclaimed first commission of Sons of the Prophet.

Karam’s play Sons of the Prophet is part of our New Play Initiative, a collection of programs, designed to foster and produce new work by emerging and established artists. The New Play Initiative cultivates new work by gifted playwrights at all stages of their careers through a three-pronged approach consisting of commissioning new works; developmental readings and workshops; and productions of new works through Roundabout Underground programs and mainstage productions. Since 1995, Roundabout has commissioned 15 playwrights, conducted developmental readings and workshops of over 100 new works, produced 6 Roundabout Underground productions, 30 mainstage productions of new works and employed over 5,000 artists across all aspects of the New Play Initiative.
