Sons of the Prophet

 

We are pleased to announce the New York premiere of Stephen Karam’s new play, Sons of the Prophet, will feature Tony Award® winner Joanna Gleason, directed by Peter DuBois.

Sons of the Prophet will begin performances on Friday, September 30, 2011 and open officially on Thursday, October 20, 2011 at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre / Laura Pels Theatre.

The full cast and creative team will be announced shortly.

Sons of the Prophet is a brutally funny new play about a Lebanese family in PA in crisis. But as they deal with crazy bosses, medical mysteries, and the end of the family line, they never lose their unbreakable sense of humor. 

Sons of the Prophet was commissioned by Roundabout Theatre Company, and will be produced in association with Huntington Theatre Company (Peter DuBois, Artistic Director; Michael Maso, Managing Director) where it recently had its world premiere. 

Stephen Karam returns to Roundabout and the Harold & Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre following his hugely acclaimed New York debut as the author of Speech & Debate at Roundabout Underground.  The inaugural production of Speech & Debate in Roundabout Underground went on to extend for over 10 weeks and has played in over 100 theaters in the United States and Canada.
